Costumed Group in Notting Hill Carnival

A costumed section will include large costumes and individuals dancing to music. It is a unique chance to be a participant rather than a spectator. The costume designs are top secret at the moment.

City of Westminster Delivery stage

pledged of £6,310

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

The costumes will be designed and built by the team. We would like to encourage people who do not normally come to the carnival to attend, wear a costume and have a cultural experience. No sketches are released until April

What we'll deliver:

  • Large costumes for individuals
  • An opportunity to take part in the parade
  • A chance to learn more about the art and culture of carnival
  • An introduction to an annual celebration that has been with us for over 40 years
  • Opportunities to meet people and make new friends

Why it's a great idea:

It will introduce people to an art form; a chance to support, volunteer, take part and enjoy a cultural experience

Steps to get it done:

  • Design of costumes
  • Approval of designs
  • Finalise crew for the day
