Pulse of the Place Youth Samba Drumming Band

    We are currently fundraising for our 2020 Vision, to take 40 Young People to New York in April 2020 to perform in the Tartan Day Parade.

    A.R.Ts Afternoon is a Scottish Registered Charity (SC045057) based in Edinburgh. Who's aims are to provide arts and recreational activities, which will support development, increase skills and extend the outlook of, primarily, Children and Young People.

    A.R.Ts Afternoons main project, Pulse of the Place was formed in 2006. This is a youth samba drumming band where sessions are free to young people and there is no audition process. Pulse of the Place have played at many events over the years the biggest being at the Paralympics at the Olympic Park in 2012.

    We have recently entered into a partnership with World Fair Trade Tartan. Through this partnership we are able to start a gentle educational process of Fair Trade and why that is important. We have been invited to join them on the Tartan Day Parade in New York in April 2020. This is an amazing opportunity for our young people, some of whome have never been abroad before. We will need to raise £50,000 for the trip to be possible.

    Thank you for your support.... Let's take a bite out of the "Big Apple".
