Samba Drumming Workshop
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 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!
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
- 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!
This activity is available during the Summer Festival, from the 16th July to 2nd September 2021
