Bringing some fun and energy back to the event this year is Bloco Fogo, the largest and one of the most versatile samba bands in Kent and the South East.

Since forming in Tunbridge Wells in 2001 thanks to some Millennium Lottery funding, Bloco Fogo has grown and developed both musically and in size. In 2006 they established a second group in Maidstone and in 2017 moved to a single rehearsal venue in Paddock Wood and now have over 60 members!

Pop down to the high street at 14:15 to see them open the event in style!
