Live Brazilian Forró & Feijoada - Festa Junina!
Our forró and feijoada parties in April and May were better than we could have imagined! Let's make this Festa Junina edition even better!
Festa Junina, or June parties, take place throughout Brazil in the month of June and are also known as festas de São João. They are a celebration of rural life, so fancy dress is encouraged (see photos below!). We'll be selling traditional Festa Junina sweets and dancing quadrilha - a very fun group dance. Make sure you get involved in that one!
We'll be kicking off with a beginners friendly forró dance class at 3pm - perfect for getting acquainted with the basic steps and turns, so that you can really get into the music later on.
Brazilian feijoada will be on sale for £7 a plate. If you've never tasted this black bean and pork stew, get ready to become addicted! If you're a vegetarian or vegan, we've got a vegan version of this famous dish just for you too. As this is a special Festa Junina edition of our regular event, there'll be traditional, homemade sweets on sale too to keep you dancing all afternoon.
And of course, our FAVOURITE forró band, Forrobamba, will be playing their beautiful Brazilian folk music into the evening for us to enjoy and dance to.
