Join us!

Whether you’re an experienced musician or a complete beginner, our Barking drumming ensemble is an opportunity to learn new skills and make some music in a friendly, supportive environment.

Weekly sessions include working on drumming technique, learning some of the project’s core rhythms and writing new material. There will be performance opportunities at various events around London, and the chance to join our other ensembles at Walthamstow Garden Party in July for an impressive 200+ strong performance!

The ensemble meets on Monday evenings, 7.15-8.45pm, at The Broadway, Barking IG11 7LS. It is open to anyone over 18 regardless of musical experience.
