Emma Britton from BBC Somerset Radio 95.5 fm visited She Drums as part of #Emmatries
We had such fun and a lot of laughter at She Drums when www.kateandloucasting.com visited the group looking for women with rhythm to audtion for a TV advert for Cadburys Dairy Milk Oat Cruch.
The group were very proud when one of our members, Anne, was recalled to London to meet directors and dress the part of a spoon playing dinner lady.

What is DRUMBEAT ?
DRUMBEAT is an evidence based award winning therapeutic intervention suitable for young people and adults “at risk” and is particularly helpful for people who are resistant to talk based therapies.
Designed initially to address issues around drugs, alcohol and peer pressure this programme uses hand drumming to address a range of recognised “risk” factors associated with unhealthy lifestyles.
How does it work?
A ten week programme for 8 – 14 that explores connections between making music together and the development of healthy relationships. Using hand drums and discussion the programme builds resiliance by increasing protective factors such as self esteem, social connection, social skills and emotional control.
Who is it for?
Young people AND adults including those within: Schools, PRU’s, Mental Hospitals, Young Offenders Institutions, Prisons, Homeless hostels, Mental health services sevices, Refuges, Day centres, Youth Groups.
