Percussion workshop at Sidmouth church

Instrument making part of Beat the Beat workshop at Emmanuel Baptist Church

A PERCUSSION workshop called Beat the Beat, will take place in Sidmouth on Saturday, March 24.

The workshop, at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Manstone Lane, will include instrument making and will run from 11.00am until 1.00pm.

Lunch will be served following the workshop.

Last year, Maggi Lambert organised a successful workshop that was attended by more than 50 people.

This year’s workshop will be run by Ash Leeds, a former youth worker, who sings in a couple of bands and is described as a “really nice guy who is very good at working with young people and children”.

Married with two daughters, one of whom attends Sidmouth College, Ash will lead those at the workshop through some rhythms.
