About Peoples World
Established as a Radical Mas Band in 1983, People’s World (formerly People’s War) Carnival Band has brought a Carnival Costume Band onto the streets of Notting Hill at Carnival time for over 20 years. We have a policy of ensuring that the themes we portray have something to say about the world around us and there is always an historically educational element.
Our ethics are steeped in a commitment to ‘Tell It Like It Is’ and hence our themes also try to make social commentary about relevant issues. Although serious subject matter is covered, themes are portrayed with humour and satire.
Peoples World Carnival Band has a wide membership with people from all ethnic backgrounds, cultures, ages and abilities.
Members are mostly from North London from the boroughs of Haringey, Hackney, Islington and Enfield.
We also try to ensure that costumes are well made and affordable as many of our band members are on low incomes.
There are currently approximately 150 members and an additional 200 friends of the Band who support events.
