Carnival Samba Royalty - Brighton Pride 2018

The Theme

Beleza will produce a full Carnival experience inspired by the Rio style of Carnival using our School’s flag colours across all of the dance and bateria sections (carnival alas).

The theme is based on the history of the Brighton and Hove royal connections and Samba’s Royalty. Creating in this way a visual interpretation of important people, buildings and context that influences our city’s current diversity.

Our colours are the pink and blue, we are using these colours to challenge stereotypical male and female places in society. 

The Samba Enredo 

The song for this parade will be the enredo of our future Godmother School in Brazil Beija-flor de Nilopolis, winners of their 14th title in 2018. “Monster is the one who doesn’t know how to love” - Beija-Flor’s presentation used as its anchor the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein theme as a protest against corruption, prejudice, hatred and inequality.
