I’ve only been to Nottinghill Carnival once and I’ll never forget the experience, even though it was in 1996. I bet this year’s carnival will have the same effect on many.

After COVID shut it down for two years, it roared back this year.

The two-day festival kicked off with a tribute to the 72 people who died in the Grenfell Tower blaze in June 2017. Members of the Emancipated Run Crew ran the parade route in honour of the victims of the blaze, while revellers and music came to a halt at 3 pm to observe a 72-second silence.
