As we all know, due to COVID-19 crisis, all bookings for 2020 and our ongoing Drumming for Wellbeing, fortnightly Carers Drum Circle, were suspended until further notice.
However a number of rhythmical activities are available online or in small socially distanced groups by arrangement where possible and within safety regulations.
Here is what has been happening:
Restore your wellness and lift your spirit at this time in Winter. We might feel our energy dipping, or quite flat at this point, after such a difficult, collective and personal build up to the new year and so much change.
Let’s see revive
d, warmed, brighter together and play.
We will tap into our own body’s rhythmical nature, move, clap, dance, listen ‘in’, listen ‘out’ and make rhythm together with drums, kettles, pots and spoons.
No fitness ability is required and you can participate by sitting, standing or lying down if you need to. We will each go with the body and rhythm we already have, let them lead us to feeling well and re-centred.
The sessions last 1 hour and are on Zoom.
YOU WILL NEED TO REGISTER IN ADVANCE through a link you will be sent when you inquire.
This way you will receive a confirmation email with your own personal Zoom link and passcode to join the session.
Fees: £5 per participant.
These can be paid when you register.

These are one-to-one or small group wellbeing sessions based on rhythm, movement, drumming and sounding. We use Zoom for the video meetings and you won’t need a drum, we can use home made percussion for the instrumental part.
If you wish to have a session in a physical space, individually or with a small group, we will arrange a studio space.
