Bacchanalia is now 13 years old and is one of the more established and well known bands on the Notting Hill Carnival circuit. We were incepted in 2005 as a fun mas carnival group – with our main objective being to bring family and friends together. A motto that we still stand by and implement to this day.
2010 saw the band re-launch itself as a full-service costume band, dedicated to bringing its masqueraders a carnival experience unlike any other. The band is and will remain, a small/medium sized carnival group with extravagant costumes, premium gold star service and an overall superior experience.
We aim to deliver the most exciting and well-executed carnival package to all our masqueraders. We are looking to revolutionise the way carnival is viewed in the UK by introducing innovative new concepts to our masqueraders and open our doors to everyone and anyone wishing to learn and be part of the experience.
Bacchanalia is about a journey – from learning about where carnival comes from, who the mas men behind the scenes are and what goes into a carnival production. Carnival has evolved considerably from its inception in the late 1700’s – taking in world influences and celebrated spectacularly in several countires around the world such as Brazil, Trinidad, United Kingdom, Canada…and is a cultural festival for all to enjoy and be a part of.
It truly is ‘The Greatest Show on Earth!’.
Bacchanalia Mas Band is led by the creative design team consisting of Kelly Rajpaulsingh and Douglas John. They are supplemented by an experienced team of Production and Band Managers who hail from all walks of life and professions – all dedicated to bringing you the best carnival experience ever!
Come and be a part of something special!
