UK Taiko Festival
October 29, 2010 § Leave a comment
The UK Taiko Festival takes place annually in Exeter. 16-18th July 2010 saw the 6th such event. The UK Taiko Festival attracts youth and adult groups from across the country to perform in outdoor spaces such as Northernhay Gardens and the Guildhall Shopping Centre. Professional groups come from the UK, Europe, USA and Japan to play in local theatres such as the Exeter Northcott and the Corn Exchange. The audiences are not only local people, but include taiko fans who travel from as far afield as Scotland, Holland, Belgium and Germany.
The UK Taiko Festival has its foundation in several guiding principles, including the growth of taiko in the UK, the provision of a performance platform for UK-based taiko groups of all ages and inspiration for new players by the participation of professional and/or international taiko artists.
