NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL 2023

Join us at Notting Hill Carnival 2023 with our friends at UCOM Carnival as we take you on a journey inspired by some of mother natures most stunning winged creations.

We are very proud to present Nicobar x Socaholic designed by the exceptionally talented Alejandro Gomez. Nicobar takes it’s inspiration from the Nicobar Pigeon, evoking the vibrant, iridescent plumage of this exotic bird.

UCOM Carnival is a multi-award winning carnival band and is proudly inclusive, welcoming all to join the celebration of Caribbean culture. Notting Hill Carnival 2023 will be truly special and unforgettable as the band will also be celebrating 15 years of mas.

There’s no better way to experience Notting Hill Carnival 2023 than from inside the band. It’s the August Bank Holiday weekend, picture the scene… You and your crew are behind the floats, hundreds of masqueraders all in show-stopping costumes, everybody jammin’ down the road with non-stop music and endless vibes.

What are you waiting for? Pick your costume and register with us now.

The 'economic impact' of a major event such as Notting Hill Carnival and the amount of additional revenue generated within a defined area, is a direct consequence of what we do.

Most people involved in this major European event volunteer their time, skills and experience. In turn this has massive positive effects on the people and communities that interact with them.
