UK Panorama

First - First

1978 - In the UK the first Panorama took place in 1978 as a pre-curser to Notting Hill Carnival. Paddington Youth Steelband won that panorama competition. Up to twelve steel bands from towns and cities across the UK rehearse daily for many weeks to learn a performance piece. For many years the event took place at Emslie Horniman's Pleasance Park in West London's Kensal Road. In 2007 the competition moved to Hyde Park for three years before returning to Kensal Road. | see more |
