Drum Circles and Events

to gather

Why not join us in one of the many drum circles and events that take place across the year? If you are looking for open circles, closed circles, women only or mixed circles they are all on offer. There are also Magical Drum Experience getaways and days full of drumming! You can even invite us to share our drum healing at events and as performances.

Magical Drum Experiences

group getaways

Travel with us to areas of outstanding natural beauty and join us in community, drumming with and for the land, for ourselves and for humanity.

**2020 Magical Drum Experience will be announced soon!**

In May 2019 we travelled to Portland in Dorset to tread the coastal paths, drum at the end of the land and to welcome the sunrise and sunset in coves and on cliffs. 

We became a deep sisterhood, letting go of old patterns and calling in the new, walking with the energy of the land and more.

Annual 'Sisters of the Drum' event

to gather

All women drummers, experienced or not, are welcome to share a full day of drumming in sisterhood. We drum together for humanity, for the earth and for ourselves. This day includes group and paired drumming, a shared pot luck lunch and the opportunity to gather with our drumming 'tribe'. 

The 2019 Sisters of the Drum event took place at Forest Hill Friends House Saturday 30th March 2019

2020 dates announced soon
