The next Drumtastic performance will take place in the Music Department at 4pm on Thursday 1st December.

Drumtastics are informal events where young musicians are given the opportunity to play in front of a small audience of family, friends and teachers. This helps pupils prepare for larger concerts in the Performance Hall as it gets them used to dealing with their nerves.
This Drumtastic event will showcase performances from musicians in Year 11 as they prepare for their final exam in February. They will be supported by the Rock and Soul Bands, and musicians in Y9 and 10.
If you would like to attend please contact Mrs Maud or Mrs Houlbrook in P5 – tickets are free!
