Only a few days to what would have been this year’s Notting Hill Carnival weekend… Yes, we are still heartbroken this magical party hasn’t happened for two years in a row!

And as last week we spoke about its origins, this week we are focusing on how Carnival paraded where born. ⁠

Following Claudia Jones’ indoor carnival, community activists Rhaune Laslett and Andre Shervington organised a street festival following Jones’ same beliefs and turned the festival into a Carnival introducing a procession and the use of a steel pan. ⁠

This event marked the beginning of the annual Notting Hill Carnival with the gradual addition of Caribbean elements including more bands and costumes. By 1974, 100,000 people and a dozen bands participated and in 1975 static sound systems were introduced adding Jamaican reggae, dub, and ska music to the traditional calypso and soca⁠.⁠
