Drumming workshops available

Free drumming workshops are available at Furnace Green Community Centre on

Monday, May 16 and Monday, May 23 from 7.30-9.30pm.

Spokeswoman Lorraine Gould said: “Bloco Fogo are bringing their fantastic samba drumming workshops to Crawley.

“The band’s performances incorporate Brazilian, Cuban and African rhythms and combine their amazing energy with a riot of colour and movement to create an infectious carnival atmosphere.

“You can join them at Furnace Green Community Centre for free taster sessions to learn the rhythms of Brazil and Africa. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary. Children are welcome to attend, accompanied by an adult.”

You can see the band perform and get swept up in the beat in Crawley Town Centre at the bandstand on Sunday, May 15 from 11.30am-1.30pm.
