Come dressed in the Brazilian colours of yellow, blue and green for a sizzling, samba party in London – the same day the 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off in Brazil.

There’ll be a carnival atmosphere with live music, DJs, dance lessons, short films, drumming, capoeira and more, climaxing with a powerful samba crescendo that‘ll have even Admiral Nelson tapping his toes!

You can get in the World Cup mood too in the football zone where the whole family can enjoy games and a range of fun activities, including an inflatable football pitch and a photo-op with life-sized images of the Brazilian team.

If all that action whets your appetite, there’ll also be stalls selling delicious Brazilian street food and snacks, along with smoothies and soft drinks made from exotic Amazonian fruits.

Please note: the Brazil v Croatia game will not be screened in Trafalgar Square on the day.

Brazil Day is brought to you by the Ministry of Sport, the Ministry Culture and the Embassy of Brazil in the UK, and is supported by the Mayor of London.
