Let’s go to the Carnival, Kids!

Sunday 30th August is officially Children’s Day at Notting Hill Carnival in London. Go and watch the dancers and performers show off their extravagant costumes and spin, twirl and jump to the Caribbean rhythms. It lasts from 10am- 8:30pm, so here’s how you can enjoy the day with the little ones to the fullest.



“What shall I wear, Mummy?”

Don’t stress, we’ve got the cutest carnival clothes right here.















“Can we eat now, Mummy?” or “Mummy, I need the Loo!”

Here are our top family-friendly stop offs in Notting Hill for a bite to eat. Remember to use the toilets too as they’re scarce at the carnival.

“Keep me close to you, Mummy!”

It’s easy for your kids to get lost in the crowds and lose sight of you. So hold their hands at all times or keep them on reins for your peace of mind.

I’m Lauren, Online Editorial Assistant for Beauty & Kidswear at HoF. By night I’m an ice skater, so I’ve been training a few times a week for the last 15 years. As you can guess this meant I grew up around a lot of hairspray and glitter, hence my love for all things beauty (Urban Decay and M.A.C are my saviours!). The rest of my time is either spent devouring feta, beetroot and quinoa salads, watching The Millionaire Matchmaker or getting broody over super cute kids’ clothes.
