Come along to our monthly reminiscence café and enjoy the memories over a cup of tea ....Colourful and exciting, 'carnival' goes back a long way and crosses many continents. Tottenham’s earliest carnival was in aid of the Prince of Wales Hospital, and flourished before the First World War. We have had many carnival appearances since then, in different past boroughs in our area, as well as the more famous international one in Notting Hill. Carnival was a time for dressing up – fancy dress, colourful costumes, or our best gear if we were not in the parade, and to have a great time. Were you ever in the parade? What do you remember about the costumes, the music, the entertainment and the floats? All welcome. Bring photos if you have them.
