Notting Hill Carnival 2012
The streets of West London come alive every August Bank Holiday weekend as London celebrates Europe's biggest street festival – the Notting Hill Carnival. This year the Carnival Bands will start at 9am on Sunday 26th August (Children's Day) and at the same time on Monday 27th of August.
One of the famous costume design companies of the Carnival is the Genesis Carnival Company, an established company with 30 years of performing at the London Notting Hill Carnival. The founder of Genesis 'Vernon Fellows Williams' was also a founding member of the Notting Hill Carnival in 1964. Find out how the Genesis mas band prepares for Carnival in the video below.
