Shown from two visual perspectives CUKFF 2011 invites you to this ‘free’ display charting the contributions of Caribbeans to British society through their PUBLIC SERVICES to the forces, healthcare, transportation and industry during the period. Througout the two days visitors to this interactive family event can view footage of the Caribbean and see a display and presentation on the history of Carnival following its roots in Africa, its journey to the Caribbean, into Europe and relevance to Notting Hill.
