Come and Join me for this unique drumming session with the Djembe drums. It’s aimed at beginners and children who just want to have fun.
We will be using the drum to tell stories, drumming to music and to improve our mental health.

Drumming is a primal instinct that can be used in many different ways

  • to play along to music
  • to communicate (jungle drums were used to communicate long distances between neighbouring tribes)
  • for exercise, a good arm and upper body and aerobic workout
  • for expression, to communicate feelings
  • therapy, sound therapy – the first sounds we hear is our mothers heartbeat when in the womb, as a result, the sound of drums can be relaxing and comforting to people.

During a “the drumming group” session there will be elements of all these points to ensure a full variety to cater for the needs everyone taking part.

The session will last around 45 mins.

Cash payment on the day is required. Reserve your ticket on our website (£5 per adult and £3 per child).
