AS WORLD Cup fever takes hold a family fun day event is being planned in Durlsey to get the town bouncing to the beat of Brazil

The Chantry Centre in Long Street is to host a series of special family fun-day events and workshops, themed around Brazilian Carnival and the World Cup.

On offer will be Community Family Fun Days, a selection of regular music and dance classes, and a wonderful carnival party and BBQ bringing the full colour and energy of Brazil

The event launching the project will take place on Thursday, May 29 and is lead by community organisation World Jungle.

Event organiser Ben Ward the “All in One Rhythm” project will help make this World Cup an exciting family event - even for those who don’t like football.

“We want to use the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this June and July as a springboard to developing a healthier, happier, more active community, creating a wave of positive community action,” he said.

“All events are family friendly and we promise to deliver a great atmosphere with lots of fun and activities, whatever the football results!”

The project is being funded by the National Lottery’s ‘Awards for All’ programme with numerous dates planned in the next couple of months.
