Every August bank holiday weekend, millions of revellers take to the streets of West London for two epic days of music, parades, food and dancing!
A celebration of London’s large Caribbean diaspora, Notting Hill Carnival began in the mid-1960s, and has grown dramatically over the years, today attended by some two million people from across the city and beyond! It centres around a giant parade that features floats, dance troupes, steel drummers and much more, though for many revellers the main draw is the hundreds of giant sound systems which pump out the bass-heavy music of Jamaica and its neighbouring islands.
After a two-year hiatus, London's biggest street party returns! On the August bank holiday weekend, the streets of West London will once again erupt in a kaleidoscope of Caribbean colours, flavours and sound. With over 50,000 performers and hundreds of floats, the annual parade is a must-see, whilst the 40-odd, epic sound systems will provide the bass-heavy soundtrack!

Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging. Such a credit to business. i would not hesitate at all in recommending bookitlist to friends and family and will define use again in the future. Thank you for pushing me to finish the challenge!
