Bloco Fogo rehearsal times and venue
We meet every week to rehearse and to socialise! All instruments are provided and no experience is necessary; just turn up, pay your subs, and join in! (we give you a month for free so you can try it out first and see if it's for you).
Historically, we have been based in both Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone, with the two groups learning separately but playing gigs together. Since November 2017, we have been rehearsing at a single venue so we can all practise together and benefit from more comprehensive teaching.
Here's where to find us:
On Wednesdays from 19:30 to 22:00 at Mascalls Academy
We currently run a yearly beginners group, with the next one starting on Wednesday 6th February 2019.
There will be no charge for attending rehearsals during February to give you a chance to see if samba is for you and you will be invited to join the band from March onwards.
However, you are more than welcome to come along during November / December and join in with the current rehearsals for two weeks, also free of charge.
We occasionally run a week-long Summer School in Tunbridge Wells during the summer holidays for 8-14 year olds to have fun and make new friends, while learning all about the different instruments and rhythms of the band.
We work towards an exciting performance in Tunbridge Wells with the main band and focus on performance skills in dance and costume production as well as drumming.
