Supported by City Living, Local Life, the Notting Hill Nurseries Carnival enables children and families to experience their own carnival ahead of the world famous Notting Hill Carnival (23-25 August).

Held since 1986, the Nurseries Carnival brings together local nurseries and play groups in Golborne and Dalgarno area – with children designing and making their own costumes. Costumes are not all there is however as a number of other evens including the Baby Nappy Derby, Glamorous Mothers and Granny Show Me Ya Hat competitions will take place with medals, trophies and t-shirts to give away to competitors.
