A new rhythm will be beating in Doncaster next month when residents get to try out Samba drumming.

The Parade Arts Day, which is taking place at Rossington Miners Welfare  in Rossington on Sunday March 13, will give people the chance to take part in samba drumming, prop making, bunting making and under 8s arts session. Reach for the Stars school of Dance, who are based in Rossington, will also be doing a special performance on the day.

Katherine Warman, Right Up Our Street Arts Supporter for Rossington, said: “This free event will be lots of fun for adult and children alike.

“It will give people who are interested in parades the opportunity to have a go at some of the art forms that help to make great parades!

“We are really pleased to be bringing Global Grooves to Doncaster to share their skills with residents. The Handmade Parade who stage an annual parade in Hebden Bridge involving over 1000 people will be back to share their parade arts making skills too.’

“This event will help to inform Rossington’s next Handmade Parade, so do come along and have your say in what is going to be happening in your community.”
