With nearly 2 million visitors attending Notting Hill Carnival over the two days, our Carnival band can offer exposure for a brand to the vast and diverse audience of spectators at the Carnival within the context of what is the ultimate Caribbean experience.


Capturing the spirit of a Notting Hill Carnival after party, the Paul Smith Spring/Summer '17 campaign film is an energetic celebration of London and the power of positivity. The video features a stunning UCOM Carnival costume designed by our very own Paul Anthony O'Donoghue.

1Xtra loves Carnival

Over the years, we've been invited to BBC 1Xtra to showcase our music, art and culture.
We were invited by BBC 1Xtra to take our Jouvert & Carnival experience on to the breakfast show with Twin B & Yasmin Evans, giving their listeners a taste of what a true Caribbean Carnival really feels like.
We worked with TfL on an offical photoshoot for their Notting Hill Carnival travel campaign. This included a double page feature in London's most read newspaper 'METRO'.


With over 15 years of combined experience, we have hosted some of London's most talked about Caribbean inspired events in some of London's coolest venues. 2019 was no exception as we curated the headline hitting, sold-out 'One Famalay' official Carnival Concert
Taking place throughout the year, our Caribbean inspired events bring together a unique mix of music, food and drinks and are enjoyed by a fun-loving and diverse crowd. We are proudly inclusive and welcome all to join in the carnival experience. United Colours of Mas aka UCOM is proud to be the first and largest supporters of the LGBT community.

We are the largest mas bands that participate at Notting Hill Carnival with over 850 masqueraders in show-stopping carnival costumes that are designed and handcrafted right here in London!
In 2019, not only did we participate at Notting Hill Carnival, we won 1st place for both carnival Sunday & Monday for Soca on the move - our booming sound system, sponsored eye-catching truck design and live music grabbed the attention of not only the spectators but the judges to.
That's not all we also took an award for our spectacular display of kaleidoscopic costumes!


We invite you to experience carnival from behind the floats as we take you on a journey inspired by an entire continent’s rich and vast cultures.
Sponsorship whether it be in the form of product or funds would go a long way in helping to sustain the efforts of the team and enhance the experience of carnival for its participants as well as the spectacle of it from the spectators.
Unlike the sound system that are static, we operate x4, 45ft carnival floats. This offers unique branding opportunities, imagine 45ft mobile billboards.
