Throughout the year all across the UK steel bands have been rehearsing and fine tuning their skills for this very important date on the pan lovers’ calendar – one of the largest steel pan competitions outside of the Caribbean.
The UK National Panorama steelband competition sees eight bands play a ten minute composition from memory – no sheet music is allowed.
Panorama competitions are traditionally open-air events and Notting Hill Carnival's Panorama is no exception. Watch the sun set, eat Caribbean street food and enjoy the sweet sound of pan while the steel bands get on with the serious business of impressing the judges. The steelbands will proudly hold their ranked titles until next year … when we do it all again.
