Newspaper cutting about kids taking part in Notting Hill Carnival on Sunday, which is children's day. It includes five pictures of them in brightly coloured costumes and the making of the dresses.

In 2009, the carnival celebrated its 50th anniversary and again children from Paddington Arts impressed the spectators. The youth arts organisation spent a year to plan the costumes, representing the theme "Knot Me In Dat." It was chosen to reflect the carnival's spirit, "weaving people together."
