RCM Festival of Percussion, 6 May

Mark Guiliana
The RCM Festival of Percussion returns with one of the world’s leading drummers, Mark Guiliana. Admired across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music, he has appeared on a string of acclaimed recordings including David Bowie’s final album.

The jam-packed day features West End percussionists Damien Manning and James Powell, plus the brilliant Ensemble Bash. For orchestral enthusiasts, timpanist John Chimes and the Percussion and Timpani sections of The Royal Opera House will be joining us. Drummers can try out our performance zone, see a BAPAM specialist, or have a free lesson with an expert teacher.

There are plenty of activities for families too and an incredible lunchtime concert featuring the Coldstream Guards presented by O Duo. The Festival also includes a trade fair featuring leading UK instrument manufacturers.

Please note that there is limited capacity for many of these events, including the family workshops, and entry will be on a first-come-first served basis on the day.
