The History of Caribbean Carnival in Britain

In November we focus on a subject of Freedom. Join us as we discuss how Caribbean Carnival in London became a fight for freedom and identity

Join us to explore the celebratory history and purpose of a Caribbean Carnival to understand its combination of Trinidadian roots, African traditions and Jamaican sound system culture and how it came to symbolise freedom in the face of oppression for the Afro Caribbean community in West London’s Notting Hill carnival.
