Drumming Up Peterhead

Drumming Up Peterhead brings life, people and business to the town centre.

What is Drumming Up Peterhead? 
Modo is working in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council to programme and coordinate a structured, advertised and supported programme of community led events in Drummer’s Corner.

Free Performances, Workshops, & Events
For twelve Saturdays over the coming year, Modo will be hosting events, workshops and shows in Drummer’s Corner bringing life, people and business to the town centre.

Performances: We will be helping local school and community groups to put on performances and shows, as well as welcoming professional and international groups to perform in Peterhead.

Workshops: As well as Modo’s own circus workshops, there will be workshops in a range of other skills and activities ranging from fitness to belly dancing, gardening to doing the highland fling.

Encounter Café: The Encounter Cafe will be open for the events, providing a friendly space to grab an ice cream or a hot chocolate, to have a game of pool or chess, or to join in with other activities.

Facepainting and Special Offers: Modo’s stiltwalkers will be out each Saturday, distributing special offers from local shops.

This year, face painting will operate on a voucher system. Shop locally to get your free voucher.

How to get involved? Local groups of all sorts (school, youth, sports, community, voluntary or uniformed services) from Peterhead and the surrounding area are invited to take part.

All types of contributions are welcomed; whether these are performances, presentations, displays, or the chance for the public to try out an activity as a workshop or drop in.

Whether you have a 5 minute dance or 2 hours of workshops and demonstrations we will hope to find a slot for everyone.

What to do next?
If you have an idea of something that your group could contribute get in touch. Or if you know of any other groups that might be interested in taking part please put them in touch.

When will the events happen? Events will start in May and run right through until Christmas, with events roughly every two weeks (weather and other events permitting). Most events will take place on Saturday afternoons, 12-3pm.

Cost: Free
