Edinburgh Carnival

Fri 09 February 2018 20:00-03:00


Queridos amigos,


The Latin American Society and the Salsa Society, with the support of the Mexican Society and Chilean Society, are bringing to Edinburgh the famous Brazilian street carnival, the biggest party on Earth!


Join us at Potterrow in February and get to indulge in...
? Brazilian appetisers
? A live Samba performance from the Edinburgh Samba School
? Hours of salsa
? Two DJs to play the most iconic Latin tunes


You can purchase Early Night (20:00 onwards) or Late Night (23:00 onwards) tickets. Since our delicious Brazilian appetisers will only be available from 20:30 to 22:30, and salsa will be played until 22:45, only those with Early Night tickets will be able to enjoy them!

We are proud to announce that we are supporting the Latin American Foundation for the Future (LAFF), a charity that supports local children's organisations in Peru. By joining us you too can help and support LAFF through our raffle for charity (£3 for three raffle tickets), which will include a variety of amazing prizes (to be announced soon)!


All profits, aside from the raffle, will help fund the Latin American Week (12th-16th of February), a week dedicated to showcasing Latin American culture at the University of Edinburgh."
