Notting Hill Carnival warm-up and afterparties

Here are the hottest pre-and post-Carnival parties this August bank holiday

By Time Out editors

For some of us, Notting Hill Carnival is enough of a party for one weekend. But given that it’s also a bank holiday, we shouldn’t discount the fact that people are pretty keen to let their hair down and make the most of the end of the summer.

It does make sense. Carnival is the perfect event for those with a penchant for a party: the exotic outfits, banging music and strong Caribbean liquor couldn’t make a better combination for helping take the celebrations to the next level.

So, as you get up to speed with all the essential info and tips, as well as the parade route map, for Notting Hill Carnival, don’t forget to check out all the best warm-up events and afterparties below.
