OUR LONDON LATIN ROUND-UP

The World Cup is officially upon us, which means that the next month in London is going to be full of Brazilian events. Thankfully, there are so many different and interesting things going on that there are very few signs that anyone's going to get bored of Brazil anytime soon.

 

However, we didn't want to just focus on Brazil so we've also got news of film festivals, salsa nights, Colombia's finest and the cream of London's Latin and fusion bands, all to come throughout June and into July. It's going to be one hell of a summer!

Check out our What's On for the latest events.
