Europe’s biggest festival is kicking off this bank holiday weekend in London’s Notting Hill Carnival 2011.
Held annually on the August bank holiday, the Notting Hill Carnival is the largest celebration of its kind on Europe.
Started since 1966, it sees thousands of people gather on the streets of West London to rejoice in the sounds and smells of a full-blooded Caribbean carnival. Twenty miles is covered in vibrant colourful costumes with hundreds of stalls and carnival revellers.
Astonishing floats procession the streets with traditional steel drum bands and massive sound systems bellow out Caribbean music. It is arguably London’s most exciting annual event; so why don’t you get involved too by making some arts and crafts for the floats by wearing gorgeous aprons.
Have fun joining in the festivities and parties and create wonderful arts with the help of Ulster Weavers and our PVC aprons. You can be as messy as you like with the assurance that your clothing with be protected from any paint damage!
The carnival kicks off around 9am on Sunday 28th August and the day is dedicated to being a children’s day with child games and activities on offer. The Monday is the adults’ day, so why not pop down with the kids this Sunday and get them involved too with our childrens aprons.
