Public Workshops and Courses

A Taste of Taiko

On a Saturday morning, every other month, we run a 2-hour workshop for adults (age 16+) who are new to taiko. It’s suitable for complete beginners, and also for those with some experience. Content varies, but we always start with fundamentals. The aim is simply to introduce you to playing taiko in a group. It’s intended to be fun! People often take several of these workshops over the course of a year. Cost is £15 per person when paid in advance, or £20 if paid on arrival. Advance booking is essential. For the next Taste of Taiko workshop please check our calendar. To book please email

Monday Morning Drop-In

Every Monday morning (excluding Bank Holidays) 9.45 – 11.00am. £6.50 per person. Suitable for complete beginners aged 16+. There is no need to book but please do check our calendar to make sure the session is running. No sessions in August.

Monday Evening Drop-In

Starting Monday 5th June, 7.00 – 8.00p. £5.00 per person. Drop in and join some of our group members playing some taiko. Suitable for complete beginners (age 16+) as well as those who already have some taiko experience. There is no need to book but please do check our calendar to make sure the session is running.

Adult Recreational Course

Thursdays, 7.00 – 8.30pm, cost depends on length of the course. This is a rolling programme of courses for people who have played taiko for a year or more and want to progress their level of playing. Participants will normally have taken at least one of two Taste of Taiko workshops and consulted with us about the suitability of this course for them. Places must be booked in advance,
