We need to have set up some structures by 4pm, when we will begin 3 workshops: Carnival making, Samba Percussion and Street Dance.
At 7pm Flaky Jake will be leading a community music jam for a couple of hours, so bring along your instruments and join the happy throng. There will be a meal available between 5.30 and 7pm, free to volunteers, and cheap for others. Bring a tent and join our Urban Village Camp if you fancy it.
