Drums in the Park Newcastle began 8 years when a number of local people decided to gather regularly in parks in the Newcastle area to play improvised music on Drums and percussion.
Since that initial idea formed there have been 55 gatherings in parks and currently 605 people now follow the group on Facebook.
The group is able to provide events which are free for people to attend. Drumming not only brings people together to find a sense of community, it also helps to stimulate parts of our brain to improve our mental health, and also to aid with physical well being through exercise and hand and eye coordination.
