Wednesday 2nd August: Notting Hill Carnival 2017 launch

August signifies the final count-down to Notting Hill Carnival, which is my favourite weekend of the year!  Friday night was the official opening party with performances from Ebony Steel Pan with Eternity Percussion, different dance routines and costume display by Sunshine Arts .  Here you can see the traditional mas characters including The Midnight Robber and Pierrot Grenade, made using the Trinidad tinsel braiding that I LOVE.  A theme to the night was honouring the recent events to the local Grenfell community with a Calypso tribute by Alexander D Great.
