London Noting Hill Carnival Cancelled due to Covid Restrictions

London is Open with Restrictions

The organisers said there was too much uncertainty about its feasibility this year after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson this week delayed the lifting of remaining social distancing rules and said he aimed to remove them on July 19.

Notting Hill Carnival, billed as Europe’s biggest street party, has been cancelled for a second year in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organisers said on Friday.

 

“This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make,” they said in a statement. “Everyone involved in the event desperately wants a return to the road where Carnival belongs but safety has to come first.”

The Notting Hill Carnival traditionally takes place at the end of August.
