Celebrate Brazil in Trafalgar Square

With the World Cup kicking off this evening in São Paulo, the Brazilian Embassy in London invites us to down tools today and head to Trafalgar Square for a free festival of Brazil’s culture and football from noon until 7pm. The day will feature live music, DJs, dance lessons, football and capoeira, and tonight the drums and dancers of the Paraiso School of Samba will bring things to a powerful climax.

The questionable part of the day's events is that the Brazil vs Croatia Match at 9pm will not be screened, but there are two hours to find somewhere to watch it afterwards, but with a diverse range of acts, bands and DJs such as DJ D.Vyzor, Maracatudo Mafua folk dance, Gilles Peterson, the London School of Capoeira Heranca and bossa nova musician Monica Vasconcelos, there is plenty on offer to entertain us beforehand.
