Forró Fest 2017 | Bank Holiday Weekend

Just a reminder that villagers are welcome to attend Forró Fest this afternoon free of charge…

After its spectacular success last year, the Brazilian dancing extravaganza that is Forró Fest is back at Bellingdon & Asheridge Village Hall and grounds over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Organiser Julia Samel was delighted with the welcome they received last year and would like to invite villagers to get involved once again: “This year we can offer a special Sunday afternoon free to all locals, from 12pm – 9pm:

Beginners Forró at 12pm, followed by Coco Afro class 2pm – 3pm, which is a very fun style of Brazilian community dance, plus they can stay on site until 9pm as we have plenty of outdoor fun for free including African dance and French folk music – Mazurka.

If they would like to stay for any evening with live music and dancing until late, the price would be £15 on the door.”
