St Paul’s rocks to African drums

African drumsSt Paul’s echoed with the sound of African drums last Wednesday (28 October) at an exhilarating and inspiring workshop held as part of the Black History Month celebrations.

Renowned cultural performer KulchaLee entertained the crowds through drumming and storytelling with an African and Caribbean theme.

We were delighted to host the event and opened the doors of our St Paul’s Community Hub and welcomed along over 20 families, from across Cheltenham, to enjoy the fun.

Our Senior Housing Officer, Kevin Rudd, said: “This was a brilliant community event and we were delighted by the fantastic turnout. The local community really enjoyed the chance to experience a different culture and joined in with the party atmosphere.”

Building on the success of the event we are hoping to work in partnership with KulchaLee to deliver more workshops to young people to raise awareness of the rich African and Caribbean culture.

Black History Month celebrates the contributions and achievements that the Black, African and Caribbean communities have made locally in Cheltenham and around the world. Held throughout October, the aim of the month is to promote knowledge of Black history and experiences and communicate the positive Black contributions to British society.
