A Brazilian themed Olympic party will take place later this month heralding the South American country as its next host.
Marking the end of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the free event will feature live music, DJ entertainment, international food stall, arts and crafts and kids activities culminating in an open air concert at 6pm.

The band, who have previously performed at the Notting Hill Carnival, are led by British born guitarist and singer Paul Paulinho, one of the top Cavaquinho players in the UK - a small, four stringed instrument from Portugal.
