Join us for a session learning to play the steel pan drums at Havens Community Centre on Saturday the 27th of August! Prior to being taught how to play the steel pan, Josephine Melville will give a brief discussion on the history of the instrument and what the Steel Here Band do. There will be a break in between playing the pans to socialise, have some food and learn from one another.
Steel Here are Southend City’s first Community Steel Pan Band. The formation of the Steel Here Pan Band came out of workshops that were created by The South Essex African Caribbean Association (SEACA) and initially funded by Essex Community Foundation (ECF) to encourage young people to come out and socialise, make new friends to improve their wellbeing. The workshops now continue every Saturday, currently with members ranging from ages 7 all the way to 78, and continue to welcome new members.
Southend’s Twilight Worlds is curated by Elliot Gibbons and produced in partnership with TOMA (The Other MA), The Old Waterworks, Grrrl Zine Fair, Southend Pride, Metal Southend, Focal Point Gallery, Southend Museums and Essex Cultural Diversity Project, and is made possible with funding from Arts Council England and Essex Heritage Trust.
