Day 1 – Wednesday 27.06.07

Panmania – featuring the North Stars Steel Orchestra

The Festival opens with a vibrant evening of steel pan music including performances by Tin Pan Alley, Panic Attack, Pandemonium and a guest performance by the award winning North Stars Steel Orchestra. In May and June 07 the North Stars will lead workshops with students from Garforth Community College, and local primary schools. Their work will be featured in this showcase event.

As the North Stars put it …‘in one evening we can appeal to the head, heart and the pelvis in equal measure!’ Advance booking recommended!
