SAMBA DOCS TOUR OF WALES

Samba Doc is a community drumming band based in Pembroke Dock, from where we regularly support local charity functions and carnivals, as well as playing at sporting events such as Iron Man, Activity Wales triathlons, Bath Carnival and similar events throughout Pembrokeshire. We even perform at wedding receptions!

 

2018 marks the 10th anniversary since Samba Doc formed and we have chosen to celebrate it by setting ourselves a " Tour of Wales " challenge!

 

During the weekend of the 19th -21st October we are aiming to complete a 500-mile journey in 60 hours, to meet up with and perform in public, with 11 other Welsh Samba Bands in their home towns !

 

With Pudsey from Children in Need charity joining us on tour, we are hoping to collect money for him and his charity at each stop /playing point.

 

Swansea's Oxford Street was one of their stopping points on Sunday afternoon. The street vibrated with the sounds of their drums, and the children were given homemade rattles to join in with the fun.
