Funders and Sponsors

The London School of Samba relies upon financial support to be able to deliver workshops, education programmes and events. We offer partners extensive media coverage, entertainment for their events, exposure at world renown events, and awareness through our vast and connected network.

With well over 1000 performances to date, we’ve performed in front of millions of people. Our performances are varied and have included venues such as Wembley Stadium, WOMAD, Tate Modern, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Sadler’s Wells, Thames Festival, Notting Hill Carnival, Edinburgh Festival, Glastonbury Festival, International Samba Festival in Coburg (Germany), and as far afield as Hong Kong.
Our audiences are music and dance lovers, festival and club goers, and varied participants of the arts and culture.


We receive support from various organisations in small and substantial ways.
