The Big Weekend
A spectacular start to the Saturday, a whopping band of 65 of us were up on stage, jumping to Barravento, and being joined by the Carnival Crossroads project for London School. We kept going on Parkers Piece (in between rain showers) with workshops and jam sessions!
Looking for something out of the ordinary for your event? Easy, hire Arco Iris! Our whistle-blowing, hands-waving, feet-stomping Rio grooves never fail to impress and get an audience dancing.
