As part of Birmingham Weekender, Birmingham Hippodrome presents Les Commandos Percu (France) and Deabru Beltzak (Spain) in Clash of Drums.

Out of nowhere, drummers march towards each other from street to street, their drumsticks twirl and their colourful faces sizing each other up for a confrontation of rhythm and light. The wild parade leads to the stage with a clash of drums. Light and fire fill the skies as the explosion of sound brings everyone together in this exciting spectacle.

Catch The Lions of Punjab for a special performance ahead of Clash of Drums from 7.30pm on Eastside Green. The Midlands based Bhangra group will perform high-energy folk dance to the beats of dhol drums in their exciting signature style. Fancy learning the moves? Take part in our FREE Bhangra & Dohl Drumming workshops and see the Lions in action.

This performance will be audio described. If you have any access requirements, please email
