About Carnival

Fifty plus years ago, social activist Rhaune Laslett and the London Free School (LFS) organised the ‘Notting Hill Fayre’, a small festival that was intended to spread a bit of hope, happiness and cultural cohesiveness. It proved a success beyond the organisers’ wildest dreams, but they could never have envisaged the massive, iconic annual event that attracts up to a million revellers from around the world. On 18 September, 1966, the opening parade drew most of the local population out of their homes to watch a small steelband, a horse-drawn carriage and children dressed as characters from history and nursery rhymes.
