Pachanga Sudaka: Sat 28th June

Pachanga Sudaka

Get your dancing shoes ready, it's time for another Pachanga Sudaka! Back again at the Blue Lagoon, join us for this cross-border benefit fundraiser for Bristol Colombia Solidarity Campaign and Bristol Solidarity with Venezuela. As we stand side-by-side, we raise a united glass to social movements resisting oppressive economic and social injustices and working for meaningful social change. Whilst our struggles either side of this Andean border face distinct political problems, there is plenty in common and plenty to learn. On this night, we remind ourselves not to leave the party out of protest - we've all got to let our hair down!

Join us for salsa, reggaeton, cumbia, rumba, latin-hop and more as we get down to the sounds of our favourite resident DJs, El Borracho and DJ Phatticito, plus special guest!
We only ask for a donation of £3 to help us get our messages out there and continue campaigning. And there'll be stalls with plenty of information on the night...
So what are you waiting for, put it in your diary!

Saturday 28th June
8pm - 1am
