This year, London’s Notting Hill Carnival 2015 will be held on Sunday, August 30 ’til Monday, August 31.
The event will take place on the upcoming bank holiday weekend and organisers are expecting more than 1 million people to attend.
The official start of this year’s Notting Hill Carnival will be on Sunday with a “Family Day ” programme. The festivities will start as early as 6 o’clock in the morning. So it be a good idea if you set your alarm clocks if you don’t want to miss anything!
After the opening ceremony there will be a children’s parade where children in costumes will weave through Notting Hill’s Street. Needless to say there will be performances and music everywhere along with food and drink.
The family day on the first day of the festival might be the best if you want to visit the festival with small children. But you should be prepared, it can get very crowded!
You certainly don’t want to miss the 38th annual Sowerby Bridge Rushbearing Festival which will be held this coming weekend. The festival will feature something for everyone with a plethora of events and fun for all ages.
As always, the festival’s main attraction will be there decorated rushcart that will be pulled by 60 locals. The chairman of the festival, John Coupe said that this year’s festival proved a little more difficult to organise but that the festival’s committee managed to pull everything together.
During the festival, the rushcart will stop at various local parish churches and pubs accompanied by dancing teams in various musicians. The fun will start out on Friday at the Puzzle Hall Inn in Hollins Mill Lane. To give the festival a great start there are will be musical entertainment, food and drinks.
