Notting Hill Carnival
CarnivalLadbroke Grove, London, UK
"Everybody chooses to experience Notting Hill Carnival in their own way. You could go to the cultural clash event; you could go to the tripping event; there are legendary sound systems that have been at the carnival for years. There’s also the parade, which is one of the most important elements because it talks about the history of it all."

"The Globe is a sweat box. It was started by this Jamaican boxer, I believe in the 70s, and there’s an archive of the history of things that went on in the area. Notting Hill is an upper-class side of London and then you have Ladbroke Grove, which is majority working class. In spots like the Globe people come together and you don’t see or feel that."
