Docklands Latin carnival cancelled

A colourful carnival celebrating Latin culture in the Docklands has been cancelled due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’.

The Carnaval Del Pueblo was set to take place in the London Pleasure Gardens on August 18.

But organisers announced that the carnival will not go ahead because the London Pleasure Gardens has gone into administration.

A spokesman said: “Apologies for any inconvenience caused, hopefully see you all next year for a great celebration of Latin Culture.”

The festival was set to have samba dancing, themed food and drink, live music and market stalls inspired by the famous carnivals of Rio de Janeiro, Colombia, Mexico and Cuba.
