It's almost carnival time and if you've already sorted out your daytime schedule you might now be thinking about where the party's at when the procession ends at 7pm? 

Well, you're in luck! Our good friends over at All Things Appealing have helped us pick out a selection of very appealing after-parties in west London and further afield to help you dance to the Notting Hill Carnival beat way into the night.

With around one million party goers heading to west London for Europe's largest street party this weekend, there's no shortage of after hours carnival themed events happening all over the capital with some very special guests in town too. Here's a selection of after-parties worth checking out over the extended weekend...


Livin Proof X Work It at Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, EC2A 3PQ


Who says the after-party has to actually be after the party? The two party giants that are Livin’ Proof and Work It are merging together prematurely for this Carnival extravaganza and it's expected to go off! If you want a dose of RnB and hip-hop get yourself down to the Village Underground. Advanced Livin Proof X Work It tickets cost £7

Turf Carnival After-Party at The Flyover, 3-5 Thorpe Close, Portobello, W10 5XL.


Located in the heart of the carnival zone, this will be the go-to place for carnival-goers who don't want to venture too far when the music finishes at 7pm. They're keeping their headliner a secret until the day itself but the rest of the lineup is still strong with the likes of Moxie on the decks to keep you dancing the night away until 1am. Turf Carnival After Party tickets cost £12.50
