Drum Works



Drum Works uses drumming to inspire people creatively, give them confidence in their ideas and empower them to direct their own futures. Around 450 people take part every week through six east London schools, two senior ensembles and an adult group. High-energy creative sessions led by professional musicians enable participants from all backgrounds and all levels of musical experience to create something they enjoy and are proud of.

All musical material is written collectively by participants, and has a fresh, original sound distinctive to our local east London community. Participants who wish to progress can join two senior bands, and an Assistant programme offers professional experience for older members. Drummers from all Drum Works ensembles across east London will be performing at Walthamstow Garden Party.

You can catch pop-up performances at various locations in the park throughout the weekend, have a go yourself at drop-in workshops and don’t miss the 100-strong mass performance on Saturday afternoon!
