The August events hope to raise funds for the Carnival Trust fund, helping to bring Notting Hill Carnival back to the streets of W10 & W11 next year and beyond.

Matthew Phillip – CEO of Notting Hill Carnival Ltd, said: “Notting Hill Carnival belongs on the streets, but the Covid pandemic presented too much uncertainty to plan for a safe event over the August Bank Holiday weekend. It also put bands in a difficult financial situation that had the potential to close them down, despite decades of history. This was not acceptableso we (the board of Notting Hill Carnival Ltd) took the very difficult decision to create alternate options for 2021. ivermectin scabies treatment curezone
