Bloco Mente are a Samba drumming group who meet on Wednesday nights at the Grafton Centre. On Saturday they were entertaining the crowds on Hyde Civic Square.
You'll find many more photographs of the event on their Facebook page.

Two more photographs following on from the previous post about the Improvements at Hyde Central Station.
As the Northern Rail service from Manchester Piccadilly to Rose Hill (Marple) was pulling into the station a Freightliner locomotive sped through in the opposite direction pulling a large number of trucks.
These trucks will have originated from the Viridor recycling site at Bredbury. I don't know how many trucks there were as they continued to trundle through as I was boarding the Marple train.

Back in October 2014 I posted a photograph of the start of the Improvements at Hyde Central station.
As can be seen the platform was been give a makeover but there is still only a small shelter and a few seats for waiting passengers. It still doesn't have the benefit of electronic timetable information screens.
The platform improvements have only been applied to the northern section of Platform 1. The bottom end of the platform has been left unimproved and is fenced off.
The car park at the side of platform 2 was used as storage during the improvement work - see the post here from October 2014. Now at has been resurfaced and lined-out.
