Carnival Comes to Funky Radio

August 29, 2020 - 11:36 AM

So it is our last Bank Holiday of the summer and what did you have planned? If it was to visit the iconic Notting Hill Carnival the event has sadly been called off. About one million people usually attend the event in west London, which was due to take place on 30 and 31 August.

Organisers said the pandemic meant that calling off the weekend was "the only safe option", but said they were working on holding a celebration on the same weekend in an alternative form.

It is the first time it will not take place in more than 50 years. At Funky Radio we will not let those carnival vibes disappear, Leon C will be hosting a special show on Monday 31st and throughout the day just put on your radio, rustle up some street food and dance away to the tunes.

Our presenter Leon C will be bringing carnival to life with a special mix of tunes on his three hour show on that day. What are your carnival experiences? Share your stories with us.

For the first time ever the Notting Hill Carnival will be hosted virtually. People will be able to stream a variety of live and pre-recorded events online across four channels on the Notting Hill Carnival website from Saturday.

After registering online via website Let’s GoDo for free, you can access all the content online over the weekend through the four channels, which cover Culture, Parade, Sound Systems and the Main Stage.
