About this video

Video of participants of music workshops for adults with learning disabilites, playing their instruments made from recycled materials in Lambeth July 2011.  Led by Nick Cattermole and Emma Parish and supported by volunteers Helen George and Rebecca Griffiths, the group had just 2 days to make their own instruments, learn to play them, and create songs and movements.  They then processed through Brixton Village and Brixton Market, making people smile and come out of their shops to see them.  Finally they performed in the Cultivate area of Lambeth Country show.  Afterwards they led a workshop for others at the show, showing them how to play the instruments.
