Having worked in close partnership with Cambridgeshire Music, Cambridge United Community Trust are proud to announce the success of their recent 'Samba Fest' project.
This exciting new programme saw children from four local schools explore the links between football and music as they developed their talents in both areas. Pupils from mainstream education settings worked alongisde those from Hearing Support Units in an inclusive and exciting series of sessions.
Participants took part in a programme of school-based workshops involving both samba drumming and football. They rehearsed in schools before the culmination of the project, a halftime performance on 17th March 2018 during the Cambridge United vs Swindon Town match in front of a crowd of over 5,000.
Following their matchday performance, the children have had the opportunity to perform to Cambridge United United first-team players back in their schools. They also had the chance to teach the players some of their wonderful rhythms.
For more information about this exciting new project, please contact our Head of Education, Tim Walker.
