This project was funded on 08 Jun 2014!

Help us host an Our Big Gig free musical street party on Sunday 13th July that will have something for everyone. Our street party will be held at and outside PST on Lombard Street, Digbeth, Birmingham and will involve a full road closure.

Little ones can make and decorate their own percussion shaker to use during the afternoon and then take home to practice with! We'll be providing workshops for members of the local community to have a go with traditional African drums and instruments. The workshops will be led by Damon Wilding and will give people the opportunity to learn different rhythms and try something new.

The afternoon will finish with a lively performance from Drum Together Brum, a local community drumming group based in Kings Heath. Drum Together Brum have only been together for six months and will show what can be achieved with a little bit of time and a lot of enthusiasm. Drum Together Brum have played at various events across the West Midlands and always create a buzz!

What we'll deliver:

  • The day will culminate in a large scale group performance and we need you!
  • Allow children and adults to create and decorate their own percussion shaker, and make some noise!
  • Create a safe, family friendly, open to all musical street party in the heart of Birmingham
  • Give people the opportunity to come together, make new friends and have a go at making music
  • Offer free drumming workshops run by Drum Together Brum leader Damon Wilding
  • Provide 4 hours of free music, taster sessions, workshops and entertainment

Why it's a great idea:

Our Big Gig hosted over 336 events last year across the UK.

We would like to be a part of Our Big Gig 2014. Using traditional African instruments and eclectic beats, we will explore rhythms, playing in a group, boost confidence and make great music together.

Our street party will be a chance to meet new people in a fun and safe environment. We hope that those taking part will discover talents they didn't know they had.

Steps to get it done:

  • We'll organise a fun, friendly, free and safe street party where eveyone can try something new, with someone new!

PST will support the street party with delicious grub and drink from their 'Roots Kitchen'.
