Africa Days in Crediton, Chagford and North Devon
We are delighted to be bringing three fun-filled days of African drum and dance workshops to the wider communities of Devon, enabled through funding from the Big Lottery.
There will be African dance and drumming workshops throughout the days, as well as singing, kids craft activities, cultural food and stalls.
“We want to bring people together from all walks of life to celebrate our diversity in a joyful way. Whether you are a complete beginner or want to brush up your rhythms and dance moves, everyone is welcome.”
Along with Denise Rowe and Allan Kerr leading the dance and drum workshops, we are very fortunate to have the craftsman and musician Kennedy Chinyere from Zimbabwe, who will be running kids craft activities, and our lovely team of support musicians and volunteers.
