Summer Solstice at the Giants Ring

There will be a drumming evening at The Giants Ring on the evening of Sat 20th of June Events programme

time - 7.30 to 10.30

there will be workshops and generally  family friendlines - not drinking and mayhem - but a lot of fun

Different Drums of Ireland  will be playing

and if you don't know of them , see their website http://www.differentdrums.info/    - they are more than good - they are awsome and it will be an unforgettable event

it sounds absolutely brilliant  - I wont  be there myself because of being away and am very regretful - it sounds great

so

bring a drum if you have one - or something inanimate to hit

and for any more info - ring 90491922 , the Lagan Valley Reional Park office no in office hours as I think it is being organised jointly by them and by Northern Ireland Environment Link (NIEL) http://www.nienvironmentlink.org/
