Samba Drumming Workshop

All Ages
Adult required
Cloud Theatre
Step into summer with our syncopated rhythms!

Fill the air with music, and dance to the beat of your samba drum at our new energy-filled workshop. New for the Summer Festival, this is a session where we want you to be loud, noisy, and filled with energy and enthusiasm!

We'll provide you with everything you need, including our wonderful team of entertainers who will take you step-by-step through the workshop, showing you everything from how to hold the drumstick to how to get different sounds out of your instrument.  By the end of the session, everyone will perform together in the Bluestone samba band using our very own instruments!

The workshop takes place in Serendome's amazing Cloud Theatre and will be separated into two different age ranges, (8 and under, 9 and over). This is to ensure we can adapt to the skills of our guests who are taking part and get the best out of their abilities!

The essentials

Session split by age group

This session will be separated into two different age ranges. This is to ensure we can adapt to the skills of our guests who are taking part and get the best out of their abilities:

  • Ages 8 and under 
  • Ages 9 and over 
Enhanced Health and Safety Measures
The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and our approach will be as flexible as possible to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff. As a result, this activity has been reimagined and changed to fit within our new enhanced health and safety measures, without compromising on the Free Range fun!
  • Protective Measures: toilets nearby for handwashing pre-session and advised at the completion
  • Physical Distancing: Social distancing maintained throughout the session.
  • Limited-Contact Enhancements: an instructor-led session with verbal communication from a distance
  • Increased and Enhanced Cleaning: touchpoints, equipment sanitised pre, and post-session. Hand sanitiser available throughout. Guests asked if any prior flu-like symptoms
  • Enhanced Communication with Staff: all team members have been given new enhanced training to listen to any concerns you may have, we will take immediate action to place you at ease during the session. Face mask, visor, apron, and gloves may be used for the instructor if required.

Children need to be supervised, but adults don't need to pay - unless they want to play a drum of their own. Otherwise, they are welcome to help their child make their craft as wonderful as possible!
