Notting Hill Carnival returns bigger and better this year on 25th August – 27th August.

Written by on 18th July 2018

London – Notting Hill Carnival is Europe’s largest free street festival and is a vital date in the diary for any visitor to London. It features a spectacular parade that showcases London’s rich and varied multicultural heritage with masquerade bands, steel bands and samba bands as well as live music stages, sound systems, children’s activities, and an array of delicious Caribbean food stalls to choose from.

Carnival Village Trust’s subsidiary, Notting Hill Carnival Ltd (NHCL) have taken over this year as the official organisers of the Notting Hill Carnival 2018.  The group have vowed to safeguard the future of the event by making it the most “successful, safe and spectacular carnival” to date.

NHCL are dedicated to the arts and bringing together the carnival’s community to reinvigorate and celebrate the carnival’s rich heritage.

“Our aim is to put on a successful, safe and spectacular Carnival and really bring everyone together, using all the incredible talent and enthusiasm that this community is known for,” says Notting Hill Carnival Executive Director, Matthew Phillips. “I saw a banner at last year’s carnival that read “ComeUnity”. For me that is carnival. It brings unity. We want to celebrate its heritage, enjoy its present and welcome as many people as possible to safeguard its future.”

NHCL have brought together an advisory board. Through this broad committee, NHCL will help ensure that Carnival’s heritage is respected while introducing a raft of new initiatives (more info attached).

There is going to be an additional 10 children’s bands participating this year, and Meanwhile Gardens will be solely dedicated to children’s entertainment and families. There will now be dedicated lost children’s posts run by qualified child workers.

As the central organisation for this iconic event, NHCL are dedicated to the arts and bringing
together the carnival’s community to reinvigorate and celebrate the carnival’s rich heritage.
They are ideally located at the centre of the Notting Hill community to make this happen.
The core team have been involved in Carnival for over 40 years, with the Carnival Village
Trust organising and hosting Carnival arts events and classes for over 11 years including
Moko Jumbie stilt walking, Mas-making, Carnival Make-Up, steel pan lessons as well as tea
and cake mornings for local seniors at the both The Tabernacle and YAA Centre.

Notting Hill Carnival is an all inclusive celebration of Caribbean culture and symbolises the
effect the Windrush generation and larger local community has had on Britain. These people
are its heartbeat and not only laid the foundations of Carnival, but also the wider community
groups that are now a vital part of Notting Hill.


“Our aim is to put on a successful, safe and spectacular Carnival and really bring everyone
together, using all the incredible talent and enthusiasm that this community is known for,”
says Notting Hill Carnival Executive Director, Matthew Phillips. "I saw a banner at last year's
carnival that read "ComeUnity". For me that is carnival. It brings unity. We want to celebrate
its heritage, enjoy its present and welcome as many people as possible to safeguard its
future."

NHCL have brought together an advisory board. Through this broad committee, NHCL will
help ensure that Carnival’s heritage is respected while introducing a raft of new initiatives.

The first is to reinvigorate Children’s Day, which has traditionally taken place on the Sunday
with special participation for children and more. There will be an increase in the participation
of children’s bands and more family friendly options.

A commitment to train a substantial number of local stewards is also central to the plan,
handing ownership of Carnival to the community, allowing the police to step back and
providing Carnival goers with the best local knowledge. Each community within the
carnival’s footprint will provide stewards for their area, with steward training to a NVQ and
SIA standard offered – the qualification providing employment opportunities beyond Carnival.
The stewards will be paid and work alongside staff from crowd management company
McKenzie Arnold.
There will be stricter enforcement of parade rules to ensure that all bands are constantly
moving, resulting in an equal opportunity for all participants to be judged as well as keeping
the parade flowing and timely.

Health and Safety will be centralised for the first time with regular planning meetings
scheduled with Carnival’s “Strategic Partners” (listed below). Enhanced temporary building,
electronics and food hygiene standards are essential in safeguarding a long and prosperous
future for Carnival.
