Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The late Pixinguinha, aka Alfredo da Rocha Viana, was as important to the development of Choro as Louis Armstrong was to Jazz. So saith Clube do Choro, a night dedicated to the chirpy, syncopated Brazilian musical form, who here advance-celebrate the National Day of Choro (which takes place on Pixinguinha's birthday on April 23). There's music from a house band followed by a 'Roda de Choro' – a musical jam in-the-round which is open to guest musicians – with dance classes and food thrown in for good measure. Dance class from 5pm, music from 6.30pm.
