|Cuban Carnival Take Over on the South Bank|
- Music, dance and food to create a little slice of Havana
TWO of Cuba’s top bands plus the current heat wave are set to make the second Carnival de Cuba even more of a celebration than the first.
Sur Caribe and Arnaldo y su Talisman are the headliners for the carnival, billed as a London version of an authentic Cuban street party, which takes place at Bernie Spain Gardens on the South Bank this weekend, part of the on-going Coin Street Festival.
As well as the music, there are salsa dance performances and lessons, a Reggaeton showcase, children’s activities and bars and cantinas serving a yummy selection of Cuban cocktails (think Rum) and food.
The event is free to all World Cup escapees and takes place on both Saturday and Sunday, 10am-7.30pm for the former and 10am-6.30 for the latter.
