Play Mas with Elimu


Notting Hill Carnival has a synergy with Trinidad’s Carnival. This provides an inspirational spark to the creativity in our carnival costumes, design, music & choreography whilst playing the London Carnival.
Playing Mas with Elimu means owning the streets of the public realm. This is our artscape. We occupy this space to convey poignant & palpable messages reflecting the multiplicity of our heritages and the modern realities of life in post Brexit London. 
JOIN our Carnival Education Partnership to support children & young people to participate in Carnival.
DONATE to our Sponsor a Youth programme to subsidise the costs of costumes for children & young people.
VOLUNTEER to work in our Mas Makers ProgrammeYouths, Seniors or Young at Heart. There is a place for you with Elimu.
  • You can play Mas at:

  • Paddington Festival (July)
  • London Notting Hill Carnival (August)
  • Kingston upon Thames Carnival (September)
  • Hackney One Carnival (September)
  • Beijing International Tourism Festival (September)
