UK Cancels Carnival
Written by The Rhyno on June 18, 2021
NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL CANCELLED!!
That’s right Notting Hill, the Uk and indeed Europes BIGGEST Carnival has been cancelled for a second year running. The annual festival was cancelled in 2020 due to the full lockdown in the UK.
This year the organisers have decided to once again cancel the event, which annually brings around 2.5 million revellers and party goers to the capital over the 2 day festival which started in 1966.
The organisers say due to the on-going uncertainty of the current restrictions in the UK, it is better to not let carnival go ahead in full. In their statement the organisers say;
“As in 2020, we are working towards alternate events that will allow everyone to safely celebrate everything Notting Hill Carnival stands for. More details on all of this, as well as special events leading into the August bank holiday weekend will be announced in due course“.
