Panectar steelband is fundraising to appear at Notting Hill Carnival 2010.
Panecktar Steelband was originally a single pan-round-neck carnival band, when a small group of us met early in 1998, our intention has always been to get together and have fun at Notting Hill in London with our families to celebrate the true spirit of Carnival that we’d left behind in Trinidad.
Based at St.Clement & St.James Church in Notting Dale who lets us use their community hall, requesting only that we play at their Carnival Mass and children’s masquerade on the Sunday. Since the beginning the band has taken on a life of its own. Friends of friends have come to help and those who had not played the pan for some time took an interest, some who had come from the era when playing the steel pan was not an acceptable pastime arrive at practice wanting – or encouraged – to learn.
New members are openly welcomed and are we are always encouraging followers as it is people’s support which keeps the band running each year!
