Welcome to Samba Celtica

Padstow Carnival

We’re a large and popular samba band based in West Cornwall (near Helston) open to all members of the community. We have over 30 people in the band and we are always happy to see new members and guests. If you would like to come and play samba in Cornwall with a fun and friendly (but serious when it comes to the music!) band, check out our join us page. We promise you'll be hooked after one rehearsal...

Interested in joining a samba band?

If you've got an ear for rhythm and would like to come and have a go at playing samba with us, then now is your chance!  You've just missed our free workshop, but you would still be welcome at one of our rehearsal nights, and the first two are free while you get to know us.

Have a look at the join us page to find where we are. Please note that the band is only open to those aged 14 and over, and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Where to see us play

We finished 2015 with the great New Year's Eve fancy dress street party in St Ives - as much fun as usual.  Bookings are already coming in for 2016.

You can view all our past and future gigs on our gigs pages.

We have played samba across Cornwall and beyond for many years: for carnivals, parties, club nights, birthdays, weddings, for charity and just because we love doing it. We are always looking for new and surprising venues – so if you have an interesting gig for us, get in touch!
