Want to find your inner rhythm & get more colour & fun in your life?

Mendip All Drummers  community djembe group could be just what you need.




There will be no meeting in Croscombe on Wednesday the 22nd of August 2018, as the floor of the hall is being re-surfaced.


A small, friendly group playing mainly West African rhythms on djembes and dunduns – and sometimes  exploring other areas of percussion and rhythm
- we love to share with audiences the joy of African hand drumming, and regularly appear at events across Somerset, ranging from village fêtes to weddings, festivals & visits to community groups. Why not join us at one of our regular meetings: on Wednesday mornings from 10.00 am till 1.00 pm at  Croscombe Village Hall,  Fayreway, Croscombe, Somerset  BA5 3QJ  (just off the A371 Shepton Mallet – Wells road) or on Monday evenings from
6.30 till 8.30 pm at  St Mary’s Hall (Innox Hill, Frome, BA11 2AN. These
are drop-in sessions at which you will be welcome whenever you can
come. Previous experience is not necessary as we adapt each session to the
ability of the people there. Drums are available to use. We have a refreshment
break each week which is a great time to get to know the members of the group.
We ask a token sum of £4 per person towards the cost of the hall &


Absolute beginners & more experienced
players are always welcome to visit or join the group. Ring up - or send an
email to charles.johnson72@aol.co.uk & we’ll get back to you - or simply turn
