Our soloist played the steelpan beautifully at Hockwell Ring Community Centre at the Homestart Central Bedfordshire's Cultural Celebration event.
Homestart is a wonderful family and children's charity that helps families with at least one child under the age of five who are going through a difficult time in their lives. https://www.home-startcentralbeds.org.uk/childrens-charity-bedfordshire/
We provided a three piece to play at the Leighton Linslade Rotary Club May Fayre on 7th May 2018. Nice video and lovely mellow sounds!
Back in 2010 a small group of parents and staff from The Marlborough Science Academy came together to build on the idea of hosting a music festival as a PTA fundraising event. With a small stage and audience and just a handful of performers, the festival just about broke even.
8 years later and the very same team with the help of further volunteers have established M Festival as a fantastic annual event that has now raised in excess of £65,000 for the school. Things have changed slightly since 2010 and with a much bigger stage, better sound, more entertainment, lighting, pyrotechnics, activities, food & drink and a firework finale, M Festival has come along way and now attracts around 3000 people.
We hope to see you on Saturday 30th June 2018 to make our 9th M Festival even better!

On February 23rd Revellers Steelband were honoured to have played at Tony Jules' funeral.
Tony leaves many lasting legacys in Luton. The last of which was an Angel - the cost of a nurse for one year at Keech hospice. He had been fundraising since August 2015 and meet his target of £40,000 shortly before he died.
He was a great member of the community and will be missed by many.
For more info please look at Keech Hospice
