The event will include performances in the Red Lion from some of our students, ex-students and other local musicians, plus there will be a performance from Africa Entsha, the brilliant African acapella vocal group. At Debees, there will be a samba percussion and dance workshop delivered by the Manchester School of Samba, who will then be performing at 6:00pm. People taking part in the workshop will have chance to play or dance to a couple of songs with them, and be part of a massive samba performance. There will be a carnival atmosphere with loads of colourful decorations, giant puppets, fire-breathing and stilt-walking, face-painting and Brazilian food.
Damon Horrill, manager of Debees and Red Lion, has kindly offered to donate all profits from the bar at the event to the cause, and it is important to note that every penny raised on the day will be spent on buying musical instruments for the children who live on rubbish dumps.
