With a rich history dating back over a quarter of a century, Carnival is an integral part of the London School of Samba’s annual calendar. We have performed at Notting Hill Carnival for 24 consecutive years and regularly parade at the Thames Festival and Coburg International Samba Festival in Germany. We are open and welcoming to all; anyone of any age, background, gender, or ability can join the school and have the opportunity to parade at Carnivals and work to perform on stage with us at our events.
