    Interesting to see how many non-West Indians are into Notting Hill’s Trinidad style carnival.

    None West Indians have always been interested in NottingHill Carnival. Try using Google or travel.

    I have been going to Labroke Grove every August Bank holiday since 1996 and guess what …there was a Nigerian Quarter then too.

      Nice to know, I’ve met Nigerians who have said to me that Caribbean people have no culture but I see Trini style carnival is so big in Toronto, Hollywood, NY, Miami and Notting Hill and everyone is enjoying it. That’s cool!!!

      The Nigerian corner (or Lagos Corner) started around 1986/1987. Prior to that Nigerians just blended in.

      I forgot to add. the one for kids is the Sunday before the Bank Holiday. It’s a 2 day event – Sunday for kids and Monday for adults.
