Hi Guys, 
Eimhin here, 
After many months of meetings we are delighted to finally be able to announce details of our end of term Mega Bash at the Blackbox Galway!
Creating exciting performance experiences for our drummers is part of our ambition which is why we decided to go big and perform in the Black Box! Our original plan was to have all bands together on stage at once but, with over 500 children in our Drumadore Steps programme, for safety and capacity reasons this is not possible. 
Instead we have split our drummers up by location and bands. This means each concert will feature "super" bands made up of kids from the same bands from different parts of Galway! 
For safety and capacity reasons we must allow 2 hours between each concert. We are aware that this may inconvenience some families with kids in multiple concerts but we are hoping you might be able to make a day of it in Galway.

10-10.30am White,Yellow bands from Headford, Tuam, Ballinrobe Guest performance from Down Syndrome Ireland group.
