Dragons Cultural Arts
Dragons Cultural Arts is a friendly band that plays at Notting Hill Carnival and around 100 people are joining each year.
Primarily a family oriented band, volunteers are welcome to join in and help with security and costumes.
Meeting the oldest masquerade bands opens the eyes to the true meaning of the Notting Hill Carnival, and how it was created, in the late fifties.
It was initiated by first-generation Caribbeans, to celebrate the culture, transmit it to the children, as well as ease lingering social tensions.Since 1986, The Dragon Mas band launches have gathered families and friends to the South Hampstead Cricket club.
