Our youth Samba group was created as part of our work with Norwich City Council towards the Norwich Lord Mayor's Procession 2019.  The idea was to bring together children and young people from across the city who work at their schools with Samba tutor, Jon Cann, to create a big drumming group.

The project was so successful that we got support from Norwich City Council to keep the group going during the year.  It meets monthly at West Earlham Junior School from 2pm to 5pm on a Saturday and currently costs £2/session/child.  It is now open to anyone in the age range 8 to 18 years, but if you're not sure or want information then please get in touch.

The group is run by Jon Cann and Jake Hishon, two very experienced Samba teachers and group leaders, and administrated by Anna Patteson.

All instruments are supplied.

For more information or to register for the group please contact us.

The group has been suspended as part of our response to the Covid-19 outbreak.  We will post the new session dates when we are able restart the group.
