September 8, 2017
by Matt Stuart
Notting Hill Carnival has taken place over the August bank holiday weekend, annually since 1966 and is now Europe’s largest street festival. Up to 2 million people descend on the borough of Kensington & Chelsea every year for the free celebration of London’s Caribbean communities, with 37 sound systems providing a soundtrack to the last weekend of summer.

Matt Stuart photographed the Notting Hill Carnival over the 27th and 28th August.
