We're thrilled to announce the renewal of our partnership with the London School of Samba (LSS) as part of our 60th-anniversary celebrations! As London's leading center for African heritage, education, and advocacy, The Africa Centre is excited to join forces again with LSS, a cornerstone of the city's vibrant cultural landscape.


With roots tracing back to our former home in Covent Garden, LSS holds a special place in our hearts, and we're proud to celebrate its 40th anniversary as the UK's pioneering samba school. Together, we'll embark on a journey of cultural exploration, honoring the rich traditions of Samba and its profound ties to Africa and Brazil.


Through a series of workshops at The Africa Centre, we'll delve into the rhythms of drumming, the movements of dance, and the artistry of costume design, offering participants a chance to immerse themselves in the spirit of Notting Hill Carnival.


Together with the London School of Samba, we're committed to fostering cultural awareness, education, and community engagement, as we celebrate our shared heritage and look towards a future of unity and celebration.
