Did you know that as of 2017, around 6,000 people are employed in tourism related industries in Luton? These employees are working in travel agencies, restaurants, bars, hotels, libraries, and sports and recreational facilities. The numbers can be well understood by the fact that in 2009, approximately 113,000 visits to Luton were made by overseas tourists, according to, with the number of visitors only increasing since then.

Other than the exciting tourist destinations Luton has to offer, the Luton Carnival is also a great crowd puller, being the town’s most popular multicultural event. It is one of the main reasons that attract tourists to this town. A creative and cultural extravaganza, this carnival includes dance, music, spectacular costumes, performance and pageantry. An expression of the British culture, the Luton Carnival is something that should be seen at least once in your lifetime, says a spokesperson from Holiday Inn Luton South, a hotel that offers world class accommodation in Luton, near the airport.

The Luton Carnival

The Luton International Carnival is one of the greatest one-day carnivals in Europe, being held on the streets around Wardown Park, since 1976. The carnival features a spectacular parade, with participants and street dancers in amazing costumes. The parade circles the park and passes the judging point on Old Bedford Road. Other than the colourful parade, revellers can enjoy the festive atmosphere created by the mesmerizing craft, heart thumping music and food stalls selling delectable dishes.

This makes the best time to visit this town on the last May Spring bank holiday, which is when the carnival is held.

Major Attractions

The Luton Carnival has always featured local and international artists, who take this cultural event to an altogether different level. In 2016, the carnival featured Rhythms of the City, the UK’s #1 touring Samba band, international Reggae sensation Peter Hunningale, and folk music from local singer, Teela2u, and Soca star, Scrappy, The Heritage Survival Band performed Afro-Jazz, and local five-piece rock band, Charlie Indestructible, performed blistering riffs too.

In 2017, the audience enjoyed fairground rides, one of three sound sites and experience the Health and Well-Being Zone, in addition to the parade.

Health and Well Being Zone

The Health and Well Being Zone became part of the Luton Carnival in 2016. This zone comprises 19 local health and wellbeing organisations. It features a community stage, various food stalls and, to top of all, an amazing festive atmosphere. What makes the Health and Well Being Zone highly attractive is that all the activities within this zone can be enjoyed for free. Revellers get to enjoy drumming, jamming and song writing at 24 music stalls, football, Zumba, body blitz and tug of war, face painting, and giant children’s games. To promote mental health, the ELFT Mental Health Trust arranges talks for carnival revellers.

The Luton International Carnival is a great opportunity to spend fun times with the family. Make sure you book accommodation well in time in one of the hotels near Luton Airport that offers parking.

Finding the Best Dentist for Kids

Consideration has been given for the editing and publishing of this post

Choosing a dentist in Whitefield, Bury is an important decision. Each person has unique requirements for a dental office. Some want a family oriented office that provides basic dental care, such as cleanings and fillings. Others want a practice that offers treatments in several areas of dentistry, including restorations and cosmetic treatments. A good place to start is by deciding what is most important for you and looking for an office that offers what you need.

Check the qualifications and experience of the dentist when making this important decision. Where did the dentist go to school? How long has he or she been in practice? You want a dentist with the right training and experience to provide the services you need. For example, if you need dental implants, porcelain veneers, or braces, make sure the dentist has training in those areas.

Dentistry is always changing, technologies are improving, and new treatment methods are being developed all the time. You want a dentist who stays up to date on the latest advances and new treatment methods to receive the best possible care. Look for a dentist who participates in continuing education on a regular basis.

Consider the Services Provided at the Office

Check on the services offered by the Whitefield, Bury dentist you are considering using for your dental care. Do you need only routine dental care? Are you interested in cosmetic treatments or restorations? Is it important for you to have the care you need provided in one office? Not all dentists offer general dentistry, restorative treatments, and cosmetic dentistry treatments. 

Modern dentistry offers more options than ever for restoring damaged teeth and improving your smile. If you have broken teeth, chipped, cracked, missing, or discoloured teeth, treatments are available to restore the function and appearance of the teeth. In this case, look for a dentist offering dental implants, porcelain veneers, braces, or any other treatments you may require, so you can have your needs met in one place.

The experiences of other patients can help you know what to expect when you visit a particular dentist. Many people ask for referrals from friends and family when selecting a dentist or get referrals from existing patients. It can be very helpful to learn what other patients have to say about the quality of care they have gotten from that dentist.

Before and after pictures often allow you to see the differences in patients’ teeth after having treatments at a dentist’s office. These can often be found on the dental practice’s website. Check to see how the patients looked before compared with after treatment to see the results other patients have gotten from that dentist.

While research can tell you a lot about a Manchester dentist, you won’t really know if it is a good fit until you visit the office. Even before you arrive, you can tell quite a bit about the atmosphere of the practice when you call to schedule an appointment. Is the office staff friendly on the telephone? Are they able to accommodate your schedule when making an appointment? At The Smile Centre in Whitefield, Bury, patients receive the best care from highly qualified and caring dental professionals.
