This eight week course will focus on modern percussion arrangements drawing upon the lively rhythms and grooves from styles including Samba, ‘Drum n’ Bass’ and ‘Breakbeat’.
Last year’s Cultural Olympiad events and activities across the region acted as a catalyst for cultural tourism. Events like The Moment When in Cheshire, Lakes Alive in Cumbria, Blaze and Preston Guild with WE PLAY Expo in Lancashire, and Sacrilege – Jeremy Deller’s inflatable Stonehenge – appearing in both Preston and Oldham raised the profile of the places where they were happening and brought them national and international attention. The cultural offer in the North West of England has never been stronger.
Do you feel passionately that Preston should be THE place to go in Lancashire for great arts and culture?
Please tell your friends, family and work colleagues as well – we really want to hear from a wide selection of people who live and/or work in Preston.
