1. Notting Hill Carnival


When: Saturday 26th - Monday 28th August

Entry Cost: Free

Location: Notting Hill, London

More information


Notting Hill carnival is an annual event that has taken place in London since 1966 on the streets of Notting Hill. It’s easily one of the most popular carnivals in London, with an expected two million or so attendees! So it’s a vital date in any party lover’s diary, but it’s also important to remember to stay safe and beat the crowds with these #MVtoptips:


  •     Go on 'Family Day' on Sunday. It’s still busy but it’s a lot less crowded than the main parade on Monday
  •     Plan your travel route beforehand and check which tube stations are closed!
  •     Always make sure to stay in contact with your #MVbabes - it can get crazy with the crowds!
  •     Stay safe and always look out for anything that you think looks concerning, there’s lots of police, security and ambulances on guard though so you’ll be in safe hands.
  •    Go crazy with glitter and take lots of fun photos! Remember to always use the hashtag #MVbabe so we can capture your best carnival moments!
