Norman Jay’s Good Times at Notting Hill Carnival

With 160,000 tracks played, 25,000 bottles of rum consumed, 5 tonnes of chicken eaten and very little trouble; this year’s Notting Hill Carnival was one of the best yet.

After four years of failed attempts to get into Norman Jay’s infamous ‘Good Times Sound System’, 2010 was finally our year. The toilets may have been ludicrously overpriced, but the sun shone on Monday and good times were certainly had by (nearly) all with the lowest crime rate at Europe’s biggest carnival in 4 years. If you, like us, were among the hordes of people (estimated at over a million) dancing your way through West London over the bank holiday weekend, chances are you don’t remember much of it so here to remind you of what you experienced are Alex Brammer and Anna Felix’s photos from day three.
