The Clash of Drums by Les Commandos Percu & Deabru Beltzak
Festival Finale - The Clash of Drums
‘this was one of those hairs on the back of the neck experiences! Amazing doesn't quite justify it!’
Audience member from Clash of Drums in Milton Keynes, October 2015
GDIF's afternoon Ignite! programme in Woolwich is followed by this year's finale - a spectacular fusion of percussion and awesome fireworks from the French company Les Commandos Percu and the Spanish street theatre group Deabru Beltzak.
Seemingly out of nowhere, drummers march towards each other in a wild parade which culminates in a theatrically staged fusion of percussion and pyrotechnics, ensuring this year's festival goes out with a bang!
Please be aware the parade includes pyrotechnics that pass through the crowd.
From 21:00 enjoy performances by Oduduwa Talking Drummers and Drummers Delight
The venue is up hill from Woolwich Town Centre.
