Come and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the cool, rhythmic sounds of bossa nova.

A celebration of music that has influenced generations from around the world and had a significant impact on music from the last half a century. Contemporary European and Brazilian artists perform a unique modern take of bossa nova and traditional bossa nova songs get a contemporary twist.

Headlining acts include acclaimed French collective Nouvelle Vague and Zeep (formerly known as Smoke City), who had a huge hit with Underwater Love back in 1997 and BBC Radio 1 DJ, Eddie Piller will be getting the decks out for a fantastic live session of Bossa Nova.

Enjoy some delicious Brazilian food and drink including traditional dishes like churrasco and coxinhas, Brazilian beers and Brazil's most famous spirit Cachaca.
