Joe Tayoun Drum Circle at 10am to 2pm.
A selection of drums from around the World will be provided, on a first come – first served basis (The “dibs” system prevails). Picture a pickup truck full of drums… that many. If you prefer you’re own, we insist you bring them. And bring your other one for someone else to use.

The Drum Circle will be back every third Saturday of the month.
