The Drum

Hubbub were delighted to bring our sellout Derby Feste show to our home venue Déda!




The Drum is a story of a boy whose heart’s desire is to have a drum and the adventure he goes on to find one. Guided by Agents of Kindness, he meets characters in need and finds ways to share, connect and support others – will his own dream come true? Exciting, accessible visual, physical theatre with live music and a party for everyone at the end. Watch out for Agents of Kindness in the building before and after the show, bunting making and badge making too. Celebrating love for ourselves, our community and our planet. 
The piece was co-created by our Learning Disabled and Autistic company, with support from The Edward Gostling Foundation, Derby Feste, Déda, Reimagine, Derby City Council and our wonderful Hubbub community.
‘I’d 100% recommend this to families, children, students… it is really for everybody.’ Audience member of ‘The Drum’
Tickets cost £12.50 (£8.00 Under 16’s)

“The quality of the work they are producing is fantastic, That will communicate to an audience and that is very exciting”

Workshops in schools, colleges and organisations working with people with learning disabilities have been an important part of the process and we will continue to develop workshops to accompany the tour.
