20 May 2023, 09:30 – 12:00

Watford Pump House Theatre, 5 Local Board Rd, Watford WD17 2JP, UK



A very special interactive percussion session led by education experts from The Music Workshop Company for everyone aged 4-12.

Young people will discover the infectious and adaptable nature of West Indian rhythm and groove, designed especially for the Watford Jazz Junction as we celebrate the influence of the Caribbean on UK jazz.

No experience is required – whether your young ones already play an instrument or want to explore music for the first time, come along and explore the sounds of the West Indies. All instruments will be supplied.

The workshop is fully interactive leading to a performance at the end of the session. The workshop will adapt to the participants giving the chance to solo for those feeling confident and the opportunity not to take centre stage for those who prefer to be part of the group.

Please let us know (by emailing if participants have learning or language needs so we can prepare suitable activities and support them to get the most out of the workshop.

The workshop will run from 9.30am-midday including a break and a final performance. Arrive from 9.30am for a 10am start.

Participation will cost £15 per child. Parents are welcome to stay in the Theatre or in the foyer where coffee/tea will be available. Everyone is welcome to attend the final performance at 11.45am, which may also feature a very special jazz guest star!
