Our mission is to enrich people’s lives through the experience of taiko drumming.
We create and perform exciting, original repertoire, forging a new style of taiko here in England.
Through our extensive training programmes for young people and adults, we will give taiko a national presence, while enhancing understanding between cultures through international artistic collaboration.
We run public courses and workshops as well as education programmes in schools. We provide teacher training to enable people to start their own taiko groups. We have adult and award-winning youth taiko groups who have performed nationally and internationally, including venues such as Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, besides local theatres such as the Corn Exchange, the Barnfield and the Exeter Northcott.
