More than 1,000 Londoners will gather at Clapham Grand on Sunday 26th February to celebrate Brazilian culture at South London Carnaval 2017.
Featuring live music, drummers, DJs and caipirinhas, this action-packed evening will bring you the sizzling sights, sounds and flavours of Brazil. Revellers will be dancing to a heady mix of samba, funk, house, MPB, bossa, forró, axé, pagode, sertanejo, hip hop, disco, sambass and much more.
The special event coincides with Brazil’s week-long Carnaval – ‘the Mardi Gras of the southern hemisphere’ – when celebrations and parades are held throughout the country in the lead-up to Lent.
The first-ever South London Carnaval was staged in 2016 at Pop Brixton. More than 1 million people viewed the event online and over 5,000 Londoners enjoyed a day of partying. Thanks to the success of last year’s event, the Carnaval has had to move to a bigger venue.
Clapham Grand is a centrepiece of London’s nightlife, boasting an electric programme of quality events within one of the city’s most beautiful, historic venues. It’s the perfect place to celebrate Brazil’s biggest party of the year.
Brazilian Events UK manager Barney Simons says:
“Despite it being a celebration of Brazilian culture, last year’s event attracted so many different nationalities from all parts of London. At a time when the world seems a little fragmented, it’s great to have everywhere from São Paulo to Sydney coming together under one roof.”
