From our humble beginnings in Sankey's Soap through being the centre of 1,800 performers in the year 2000 in Castlefield Manchester, playing for the Commonwealth Games, and locally during the London and Rio Olympics and in 2016 making costume for Haribo and playing in an Aldi advert, Manchester School of Samba (MSS) have been entertaining crowds in stadiums, on parades, in clubs, hotels and pop up venues, locally and further afield, and occasionally on National TV and Radio using dance and percussion, since March 1995.
The costumes and giant puppets we have, we made ourselves, for the Manchester Day Parades and use for local carnivals where we sometimes include a brass section!
MSS have been as far North as Dumfries, Carlisle and Newcastle, as far South as Brighton and Portsmouth, as far East as London and Coventry and as far West as Belfast in the UK, as well as to Germany, The Irish Republic, The Netherlands and France.
