    Europe biggest street party, The Notting Hill Carnival has been taking place in London, on the last weekend in August, every year since 1964.

    This great festival began initially from the energies of Black immigrants from the Caribbean, particularly from Trinidad, where the Carnival tradition is very strong, and from people living locally who dreamed of creating a festival to bring together the people of Notting Hill, most of whom were facing racism, lack of working opportunities, and poor housing conditions resulting in a general suppression of good self-esteem.


    Five disciplines go to make up the carnival as we know it today. Mas' from (costume, Masquerade), Steelband, Calypso (political, social and satirical commentary, set to music), Soca (the traditional music of Carnival, a fusion of Soul and Calypso) and Static Sound Systems all play their part on the two days of Carnival-on-the-Road.


    The photographs displayed on this site have attempted to capture some of the spirit and colour of the great event.

    Wish I'd made it. I got as far as Knotting Hill Gate tube on Sunday evening, then the missus and her friends wanted to get some eats and I got dragged along to some restaurant in Kensington for the rest of the evening, when all I wanted to do was drink redstripe, smoke doobs and dance with a big fat Jamaican woman.
