The famous and immensely popular Notting Hill Carnival is still a couple of weeks away, on the August Bank Holiday, but this weekend we're starting celebrations early by heading down to The Carnival Pioneers Community day on Portobello Green.
The day offers the opportunity to celebrate with some of the people who pioneered Notting Hill Carnival from its incarnation and made it into what it is today.
The theme for the day is 'Founding Mothers', and pays tribute to the women who were fundamental figures in cultivating the carnival from its humble beginnings into an important fixture of London's summertime, and a carnival of international standards.
The Carnival Pioneers Community day will include live music and DJs, as well as activities for children to enjoy like face painting, dance competition and bouncy castles, promising to be a fun day for the whole family.
