Last week we gave in to our animal instincts and asked who was your favourite four-legged London friend. Thanks to everyone who commented.

Today, we’re looking ahead to the weekend, and London’s big street party: the Notting Hill Carnival.

The biggest festival of its kind in Europe, the Notting Hill Carnival has some impressive stats:

  • 20 miles of costumes
  • 40 static sound systems
  • 100s of caribbean food stalls
  • 40,000 volunteers
  • 1 million revellers

We want to know, what’s your best Notting Hill Carnival memory?

Is there a particular costume that sticks in your mind? A tune that will always remind you of a stunning summer’s day in West London? A moment when you met and partied with a fellow reveller? Something truly crazy that sums up the spirit of London’s best carnival?

Let us know!
