An Island carnival group will perform in Hackney today (Saturday), as the Olympic Torch enters the host borough for the first time.
The New Carnival Company (NCC), which is based in Sandown, is putting on a samba-inspired show, with a St George theme.
NCC has been working with deaf and disabled groups on the Isle of Wight to produce the performance.
They've also teamed up with Embaixadores da Alegria, Rio di Janeiro's leading disabled carnival group.
The collaboration involves a number of workshops and exchanges between disabled and non-disabled artists and makers to create a a spectacular Rio Carnival style samba float accompanied by 80 colourful Brazilian style carnival costumes.
Chris Slann from the group told Isle of Wight Radio, 'we have two people at the lead of our presentation - the master of ceremonies and the flagbearer. We've got a traditional-style Rio Carnival flag.
'We've got a large float, which is a huge dragon with St George riding upon it.
'The Hot Green Bus Dance Company from the Isle of Wight College are performing a theatrical piece as we come in, and behind them we've got a full bateria of drummers and dancers'.
The performance is part of the One Hackney Festival, which celebrates the torch's arrival in the borough.
The New Carnival Company will return to London in September, to perform in the Olympic Park.
