Everyone welcome, any musical instrument, any age or ability.
Adults £8; Unwaged £5

Repeat of September’s brilliant event of drums and other instruments jamming for fun with a West African undertone.
This one will be facilitated by Alex Miles of DCFG and is also a celebration of the 3 Miles’ birthdays [Geoff’s big one].
Hand drums [mostly djembes from Africa], frame drums, other percussive instruments from around the world, and also any other instruments that complement the free-form rhythm produced by the circle.
Everyone is welcome, whatever their age or ability.
“Had such fun at our Drum Circle jam session last year. As well as us amateur djembe bangers and budding percussionists and paradiddlers, some people who could actually play musical instruments turned up!” Nic Walker
