Every week at St Simon and St Jude’s Church, Thurcroft S66 9LH, on Thursdays from 5.30pm to 6.30pm, the Rotherham African Drummers (RAD) meet to practice. These sessions are open and welcoming to everyone and no experience is necessary. The drummers have found being involved is a great way to build personal confidence, get rid of stress and also have huge amounts of fun! Each session costs £6.00 for adults, £4.50 concessions and £3.00 for children aged 13 years and over.
RAD have also just been awarded a six-month organisational development grant with Awards for All (National Lottery), proving an exciting time for the group. The money will aid the group as they go through a process of change and re-organisation, injecting a new lease of life into both sessions and performances.
