Learn the simple choreography from our fierce friends at WigLe Dance and join the festivities as the parade ends on King Street.
We are looking for participants aged 16+ to join the percussion section of our exciting community parade on Saturday 8th July.
Participants will need to come along to a workshop, then join the parade on the day. They will play either djembe, hand drums or shakers and stick clicks. Experience not essential, but good sense of rhythm and also some strength and fitness required for the heavier instruments.
