Bloco Fogo rehearsal times and venues

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. At the moment we're about to start an exciting 3-month trial of a single rehearsal venue so we can all practise together and benefit from more comprehensive teaching.

Here's where to find us:

Tunbridge wellS

On Tuesday 3rd, 10th & 17th Oct 2017 from 19:30 to 21:30 in Tunbridge Wells, at The Forum

PADDOCK WOOD

On Wednesday 27th Sept & from 1st Nov onwards from 19:30 to 22:00 at Mascalls Academy

N.B. There is no rehearsal w/c 23rd Oct 2017

 

BEGINNER WORKSHOPS

From time to time we run beginner workshops, if you'd rather not jump in at the deep end. We'll post more information about the next one here, so keep checking back if you're interested in joining in, or you can register your interest below, and we'll email you with more details.

 
 

SUMMER SCHOOL

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.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Matt and the rest of your band who attended the New Romney Country Fayre yesterday. Bloco Fogo really are a joy to work with, as you are so friendly and amenable and will also always help us out with performing extra sessions, etc. You were as fantastic as ever in the parade and both your arena performances attracted big crowds. We love having you as part of our event and will be delighted to invite you to come back to New Romney for many years to come. It wouldn’t be a Country Fayre without you!
