Drum street party – Birmingham
Read the story
Birmingham-based drums group Drum Together Brum organised a free musical street party this summer on Birmingham’s Lombard Street. The events enabled people to participate in instrument making workshops, music sessions and much more. Small children could make and decorate their own percussion shaker and play along with adults.
At the day of the event the road was closed to create a safe environment for families. £830 of funding was raised via Spacehive, to cover workshop leaders, a performance, materials to make instruments, hiring instruments and the road closure.
The event was closed with a gig of Drum Together Brum themselves and a large scale group performance of all newly discovered drum talents. There was certainly plenty of noise to attract people to the area!
