Tunbridge Wells Lantern Parade 2015

Bloco Fogo's HUGE band of 40 drummers led the parade of hundreds of children and their lanterns through the streets of Tunbridge Wells for the annual Winter Lantern Parade.
Their seemed to be more lanterns than ever before this year having been created during several workshops throughout January. With a general theme of water this year there were fishes galore, including a special Bloco Fogo Fish !

Special thanks go out to Town & Country housing and CREATE ( Camden Road Education, Arts & Theatre Enterprise) for supporting the event and helping to make it possible, along with all those that donated to help the group make their funding target of £1,000.

DragonBoat Racing Bewl Water

A breezy and rather showery day bought to life by the sounds of us drumming, Mixtures of South American drumming and Hawaii five O music seemingly blending rather well.
