Drum With Us

Longmead Centre, Epsom,
Ticket price: 

This event has been organised independently by a local partner group, in cooperation with MGSO4, to promote social inclusion through the arts.

Join Drum with Us for a totally improvised, fun drumming experience for all. No previous musical experience is needed, all drums and percussion provided. It is all about ‘in the moment’ music-making where there are no wrong notes, no mistakes and everyone’s contribution is encouraged and celebrated.

Communal drumming can de-stress, reduce blood pressure and aid pain management, as well as being great fun. It can benefit everyone including people with mental health issues, Parkinson’s and early Alzheimer’s.

Ray Watters of Drum with Us is a certified drum circle facilitator, and counselor, who specialises in working with vulnerable audiences and building community through drumming. Ray was a drummer at the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and took part in the closing ceremony too. He was a drummer in the UEFA Champions league final 2013 at Wembley and is part of the Pandemonium Drummers, a voluntary drummer group.

Adults only.
