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 over 1000 gigs played to date for an audience exceeding 1.5 million, the London School of Samba productions are varied and include performances at Wembley Stadium, WOMAD, Tate Modern, Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, Sadler’s Wells, Thames Festival, Coburg International Samba Festival, Edinburgh Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Chinese New Year 2011 in Hong Kong and Notting Hill Carnival.

Performing throughout the UK as well as internationally, our audiences are music and dance lovers, festival and club go-ers, and varied participants of the arts and culture.  




We receive support from various organisations in small and substantial ways.
We’d like to thanks Grants for the Arts for enabling our 2014 carnival tour.
