Venue and location updates

DrumTrek is taking shape. Here are a list of confirmed venues, times and contacts for a drum circle near you. Still a few TBC’s but we’ll have those for you shortly.

Drum Trek is an idea that has sat with me for a while now….

I often dreamed about taking the van and the drums on the road and doing some kind of tour…running a business and managing and delivering trainings for UK Playshop meant time was always against me… I just needed something else to push me…Stainsby Festival was the initial nudge and then Wiston Lodge….Stainsby is a Festival very close to my heart and a place I have been facilitating drum circles at since 2000…last year the festival site came up for sale and I knew that I could do something to make a contribution…around the same time I moved to Wiston Lodge, a venue I have known and loved for many years, to begin a volunteer post to develop Music and Arts for the charity.

Here I was then, with two organisations that required fundraising…both are models of how I believe we can work in community….both inspiring in their own ways…both have touched me deeply…moved my spirit if you like….So what to do then…well of course I could fill out an application to The Arts Council’s of England and Scotland ( which we will do to ask for match funding) or I could follow my bliss and do something I love….Facilitate Drum Circles….All across the UK….A marathon journey with the drum…26 locations ( possibly rising to 28 as of June 14/2015!!!!) from North to South, beginning at John O’Groats in Scotland and ending at Lands End in Cornwall through the summer month of July 2015.

This is now a REALITY….In 26 days….Driving and drumming I will facilitate at the following locations:
