Continuing the outdoor activities theme, the Drums have been playing at Tideswell and Bakewell Carnivals.
On Saturday 29th June, the Drums payed at Tideswell Carnival for the first time. It was a very hot and sunny day and the drummers had plenty of opportunities to drink some water when stopped on the route. Many people commented how professional and talented our young people are. They played so well, they have been invited back next year.
Then last Saturday, they played at Bakewell Carnival. After a few showers which cleared up from about 12.30 they had a great day. The young people had a game of football before the parade and there appeared to be a lot more people out on the route this year.
Lots of good comments about the young people were overheard and at one point when they were stopped, a woman actually came to speak John and said how good the young people sounded and how professional they all looked!
Look out for the Drums playing at more local events over the summer and Eyam Carnival in September.
