It’s Carnival innit

history-of-notting-hill-carnivalWhile working at Kiss 100FM I had the privelege of being their go-to Carnival reporter. I spent the weeks leading up to the carnival talking to the costume makers, Pan specialists and interviewing the pioneers of the carnival and understanding the history of what the event means and why it’s so important to so many communities in London.

Kids, families, and anyone with a love for Caribbean culture are in for a treat at the Panorama steel band competition London event. Held in Horniman’s Pleasance Park on Saturday 23rd August at 6pm the big live music event takes place just before the 2014 Notting Hill Carnival. So a great place to go to see the action without having to endure 2.5 million people over the Sunday and Monday.
