African drum circle at Barnsley

It couldn't have been more idealic. Beautiful weather, a beautiful open air venue at the grounds of Cannon Hall - and lots of familes really up for bashing drums and generally having a really good holiday drum jam! Children ranging from 5 to forty got down and made a big funky sound with djembes, African bells, Dunduns, wood blocks and sound shapes. The day went so quickly! Here are some comments from the participants:
