Events and Festivals

Community Events & Festivals covered by Paul Edwards, sometimes I am asked to take a few photographs or produced a small video at a local event. If you would like me to turn up at your local event please contact me. I do get very busy and have to be a bit selective, but if I am available I might be able to make it. I would like to point out that my work is totally voluntary, and thats because I enjoy doing what I do.

Juba do Leão at Big Drum Day, Chorley 2009Brazil meets Chorley, the public were treated to a colourful event for free in Astley Hall's Walled Garden at Astley Park, Chorley.

Dance, Percussion and Drum groups from around the North West blended music styles from africa to brazil, a fusion of sound you only find at big carnivals, mixed in with traditional dancing. The event was a success and I for one would like to see it repeated in places like Manchester, the crowd watched the cream of groups from the north west giving a fine display on their buildup to participating in upcoming carnivals.
