Worldwise Samba Drummers

 Jon Aveyard (musical director of the Worldwise Samba Drummers and project leader of the Something for Everyone project) will be calling up the bold amongst you to get some simple percussion patterns going.  No experience required, just enthusiasm and a willingness to whack an instrument in time.

The Worldwise Samba Drummers are a community music group open for anyone to join regardless of experience or ability.  They meet every Wednesday at 6pm in Media Factory room 035.

The Something for Everyone project provides one-off, accessible workshops for the public and supports community groups through provision of a venue, funding opportunities and networking opportunities. Samba Drummers
