27-28 August - Check the forecast for Notting Hill Carnival, the biggest carnival of its kind in Europe.

When it comes to carnivals, few can rival the world famous Notting Hill Carnival. Held since 1964, the carnival is the undoubted highlight for much of the West London community, attracting more than one million people every year.

Since becoming an annual event in 1965, the Notting Hill Carnival has since grown to become the second biggest street festival in the world - bettered only by the Rio Carnival in Brazil.

The event is led by members of the West Indian community to bring the entire community of Notting Hill and beyond together in celebration of music, dancing, colour and food. First held in 1959, just a year after the Notting Hill riots, the carnival has been transformed from a small indoor event into one that generates an estimated £93m for the London economy.

But what brings more than a million people to the Notting Hill carnival? Well, there is the attraction of more than 20 miles of some of the most vibrant, colourful and outlandish costumes that you will ever see, as well as some fantastic food stalls and cool Caribbean music (including those iconic steel drums). The Notting Hill Carnival has, throughout its history, retained a Caribbean flavour but the 40,000 volunteers work hard to make this an event for people from all walks of life.

For more information about the festival visit the  Notting Hill Carnival website.
