Join Samba Celtica

Samba celtica playing club night in Falmouth

About our rehearsals

Samba Celtica rehearse every Thursday evening throughout the year from 7.30 - 9.30pm at Carleen Village Hall, Breage, near Helston, Cornwall, TR13 9QP (see map below). All members and guests are asked to arrive in plenty of time to start playing at 7.30. Very occasionally rehearsals are rearranged or in a different location so if you're coming along for the first time, get in touch with us to check!

We supply tea, biscuits, earplugs and instruments (although if you’ve played samba before and have your own instrument, feel free to bring it). You can come to two rehearsals for free and after that there’s a small weekly rehearsal cost (normally just £3 a week for members) to cover the room booking fee.

Band members are expected to attend rehearsals as regularly as possible and gigging band members need to commit to as many of the gigs we have throughout the year as they can (gigs are usually at weekends). Once our mestre feels you're ready to play a gig you'll be invited to join the gigging bateria.

The band recently changed the lower age limit from 16 to 14 to help encourage younger players in the area.  Anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Get in touch with us if you’d like to come along to a rehearsal, just to check it’s not at a different location (happens very occasionally) and so we know to look out for you. Please get there a bit early to have a chat to us before we start. We look forward to meeting you!
