 During the August bank holiday weekend it’s time for London’s biggest street party –  a colourful and vibrant celebration of the Afro-Caribbean communities in London. The carnival’s main event is a massive parade with live and recorded music, dancers and performers taking the streets of London’s most colourful area.
