1.5 hours is long for a youth and family drum circle so we will play it by ear if children are restless. We will do 45 minutes, take a break and if the attention is wandering Joseph would likely let me do a few drum games and then return with a drum and dance ending.

You can feel free to remain for the time you feel your children are OK with it, bring a snack for break, a colouring book, whatever you feel will help them settle.

I can assure you that Joseph is a “kid magnet”. He has performed at many Children’s festivals and most children have never seen or experienced anyone like him.

I hope you will take advantage of the rare opportunity even if you can only stay for the first part until the break – and we will continue with those who feel they wish to stay So 45 minutes, a 15 minute break, and then the final 20 to 30 minutes depending on attention span. We will make it work for you.
