The Rhythm of Africa
A fundraising evening for Cancer Reasearch
Traditional African Drumming and Percussion comes to Heckington Village Hall
Come along to a brilliant evening of playing African Djembe. It's great fun and easy to pick up. If you can count to four, you can play.
All musical instruments are provided, so all you need to do is turn up and have a fun time playing them.
We caught up with the organiser, Diane Matthews and asked her why she wanted to run a Djembe workshop?
I moved to the village in October 2015 after living on the Essex/Suffolk borders for 30 years.Djembe, African Drumming came into my life when I was dealing with chronic illness (cancer). It has great therapeutic benefits as you get lost in the rhythms of the drums and it has such a feel good factor. Whenever I run these workshops, people always have a great time and ask when is the next one? By profession, I am a Management Trainer and often use Djembe in Team Building and Away days. But my favourite thing to do is working in communities and introducing the joys of Djembe to others. I use this to help me raise funds for Cancer Research and thus far have raised over £18,000.I provide all the instruments and if you can count to four, you can play. I really hope my new community of Heckington will support me and ask for more workshops.My Djembe evening is Friday 27th May at the Village Hall. Tickets are £10 and available from the Windmill Shop in the village. I am attaching one of my flyers which will be displayed around the village.
Our beloved Heckington Windmill is holding an open evening on Friday 29th April 2016 at 7pm at the Village Hall on the High Street. Come along and listed to all the latest Windmill news, including an update from the Heritage Lottery Fund project.
