Capoeira School Semente da Senzala Haarlem, Holland
Capoeira was developed by slaves in Brazil as a stealth strategy to outwit and combat their captors. This Brazilian art form will be presented by a Dutch Capoeira group in the United Kingdom; a fine example of how a marginalised group of people managed to inspire the world. Capoeira School Semente da Senzala offers community classes and workshops for children and adults, including a recently developed programme for teenagers with Autism.


Cosmos Choir
The Cosmos Choir is an exciting group of young singers aged 8–13 from South Bristol, led by musical directors Laurie Gethin and Mark Lawrence, funded and managed through the education programme of St George’s Bristol.  Cosmos meets for weekly after-school rehearsals at Knowle Park Primary, with members coming from a number of local primary and secondary schools. www.stgeorgesbristol.co.uk
