GET #CARNIVALREADY WITH A HOST OF EVENTS & CARIBBEAN STREET FOOD THIS BANK HOLIDAY

Notting Hill Carnival, one of the biggest cultural events in the UK, is returning following a two year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic this Bank Holiday weekend from 27th – 29th August.
​​​​​​​
Whether you are planning to head to West London or not, BOXPARK will become a fiesta of Caribbean culture leading up to the event with a Carnival Warm-Up schedule from 24th August – 28th August. The line-up features music events with plenty of reggae and riddims, parties to dance the night away, delicious Caribbean street food, and all-round good vibes.

CARIBBEAN FOOD AT BOXPARK

Head to BOXPARK Shoreditch and indulge in tropical and authentic Jamaican flavours from Rudie’s. You can choose from a mix of traditional Caribbean staples such as Jerk Chicken and Curry Goat or go for their Jerk-It-Up Box, Yardi Box or Jah Love Box. 

Cure your hunger after the workout with a wholesome, hearty Caribbean meal from Mama Jacq’s. Try their award-winning cuisine ranging from curry goat, stewed salmon, fish tacos and jerk chicken – all meat is well-seasoned and marinated before being slow cooked to perfection, but there’s plenty of options for veggies too. 

If you’re looking for something extra spicy, sign-up to Beefeater x Big Mike Presents: Bank Holiday BBQ on Sunday 28 August from 1pm. Dance to the sound of steel bands and calypso music on the terrace whilst tucking into a mouth-watering BBQ menu.
