If you’re a Londoner, true or temporary, you might be feeling un peu gloomy about this coming weekend. Because, sadly, the environs of Notting Hill won’t be throbbing with the addictive beats and feather-shaking glamour of its annual festival. Another COVID casualty, the famous carnival is leaving the streets to go digital for 2020.
As Bloobloom HQ is in the area, we’ll miss the party vibe, processions and awesome street eats. Team member Harriet is a keen carnival regular. Her highlights include getting paint-soaked on the colour runs, dancing in the streets (naturellement) and popping into local people’s houses to use the loo (for a fee). Then staying on if there’s a party in full swing...
Alas, 2020 is NOT the summer of spontaneity. As we’re all painfully learning, it pays to BOOK BEFORE heading out on an expedition, however tiny. So check those links before you go.
Allez – go!Merci.
