MENDIP ALL DRUMMERS have been sharing the joy of African hand drumming - learning & playing together for more than five years now. Based at Hillmead Community Hall, Meadow Rise, Shepton Mallet BA4 5EZ, where we meet each Wednesday morning from 10.00 am till 12.45, we’re a quite small but very keen and friendly group, playing mainly West African rhythms on djembes and doundouns - as well as branching out to explore other areas of percussion and rhythm, song and dance.

Absolute beginners and more experienced players are always welcome to visit or join the group. Ring up - or send us an email at [email protected] and we’ll get back to you - or just turn up on a Wednesday & see what we’re up to. The first hour or so each week - before the refreshment break - is usually a fairly slow and easy session suitable for beginners. After the break things may get a bit faster and more complicated, but you’re very welcome to stay and see how you get on. Drums are available

We’re always happy to give demonstration workshops or performances at weddings, parties and other events. Contact Charles (01749 – 890019) or Wendy (01373 – 461903) for further information.




Don't be shy, say hello. We'd love to hear from you.
