24th & 25th Aug Notting Hill Carnival

Notting Hill in West London may seem a long way from the Caribbean, but during the final weekend of August, its streets erupt with the supercharged noise and colour of carnival with crowds in excess of 1 million. Second only to Rio in its scope, the Notting Hill Carnival has grown to become the biggest street carnival in Europe. Along 3 mile route, flamboyantly dressed participants dance their way to the music of steel bands, reggae and the many licensed static sound systems along the way playing a mix of jazz, soul, hip-hop, funk and drum and bass music.

Many of Acorn  printed T shirts will be on display
