One of the UK’s biggest annual events, the Notting Hill Carnival, has been canceled for the first time in its 54-year history because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

More than a million people attended last year’s event in London over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

A statement on behalf of the organisers said: “The board has taken the decision that this year’s carnival will not take place on the streets of Notting Hill as it has done for over 50 years.

“We are working towards an alternate NHC 2020 that we hope will bring the carnival spirit to people from the safety of their homes, and make them feel connected and engaged.”
