Black History Theatre Show: The Leopard and the Drum

Saturday 19th October

This traditional Ashanti Folk Tale from Ghana features songs, live drumming, puppets, dressing up and lots of fun for all the family.

About the story:

Osebo the Leopard has the biggest and loudest drum in the whole of the rain forest. He is the envy of all the other animals but the only problem is  that he won’t  let anyone else have a go on his drum not even Nyame the Sky God.

Who will bring Nyame the Sky God Osebo’s big and loud drum? Will it be the elephant, monkey, snake or tortoise?
