A taste of Rio will come to Portsmouth on Wednesday 5 July when hundreds of primary-aged children will fill the heart of the city with drums, songs, streamers, flags and whistles.
Portsmouth Music Hub will be holding its annual Cultural Carnival. It brings together children from schools across the city and performances from local partner organisations, including professional singers, musicians and dancers.
Watched by families, friends, and surprised and smiling members of the public the Carnival procession will take the children from Portsmouth's Guildhall Square and into Victoria Park. There will be laughter, singing, dancing and flags waving, and the children in masks and costumes will entertain the public and ruffle the feathers of a few startled pigeons!
The spectacular Portsmouth Music Hub Cultural Carnival takes place at 9.30am on Wednesday 5 July at the Guildhall in Portsmouth.
