Notting Hill Carnival 2011 – sound systems & map

That’s right folks! The carnival will be upon us soon: that yearly event that turns this area into a massive stage for a street party.
 
Let just hope that the dickheads who are intent on causing trouble, stay at home with their mummies, and that the weather bless us with glorious sunshine. 

This year - yet again! - has been a bit difficult to get hold of a half decent map. The RBKC has published one for the sound systems that you can see here. To be honest it’s a rather boring looking one. You can also find this one with the google maps from last year (Sound Systems tend to stay in the same place year after year). Plus for parking restrictions check this one. We will of course try to gather more info. 

In the next couple of days, we will be sending out our Newsletter Carnival Special with all the after parties that are worth a mention. In the meantime check the Listings for upcoming events
 
Keep tuned.
