FROM COFFEE BAR TO
The 70s Coffee Bar on 70 Harrow Road was a popular drop-in centre for youths in Paddington that quickly gained a reputation as a combative centre whose members were not averse to robustly challenge the frequent incursions by officers from the notorious Harrow Road Police Station.
Community arts groups work together to put on the Notting Hill Carnival Every year.
Elimu Mas Academy has been participating in Notting Hill Carnival since 1980.
Each year, masqueraders parade in costumes created by the academy’s designers, which are appreciated by thousands of spectators at the event.
The Black Cultural Archives collections feature the oral histories of Elimu which discuss and explain the art of carnival.
