Notting Hill Carnival to hold one-minute silence

On Monday 28 August at 3pm, the Notting Hill Carnival will host a minutes silence. Hundreds of thousands of spectators, performers and musicians will fall silent in order to commemorate and respect all the people who lost their lives and whose lives have been affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

Pepe Francis MBE, Chair of London Notting Hill Carnival Enterprises Trust, said “The Notting Hill Carnival is and always has been about togetherness and solidarity. It’s the heart and soul of our community, so it feels right that we continue celebrating the vibrant culture, diversity and unity we all need now more than ever, and that we all pause to think about what’s happened. That’s why we will halt the music at 3pm for a minute’s silent contemplation.”
