Produced by Hackney Council and since 2013 was directed by Global Carnivalz’s Chief Executive Pax Nindi (till 2020), this Carnival has been dubbed UK’s fastest growing and safe event, whilst the Metro call it an alternative to Notting Hill Carnival. In addressing the fast growth of this event, it is now based around Central Hackney from its original starting point of Hargerston Park and Ridley Road. The Carnival features seven sound systems, live stages, food and information stalls, street arts, kids and spoken area zones and the procession features over thousand participants and recently the event attracts over one hundred thousand visitors to the area. As the event grows the zones and route may continue to change, so far the procession starts and ends in London Fields passing through the Town Hall where each groups stops to present their costumes and movement to Carnival Judges.
