Rotherham African Drums or RAD as they are widely known, are a drumming group who host weekly sessions in the town at both ROAR on Tuesdays and in Thurcroft (St Simon and Jude’s Church) on Thursdays. Open to beginners, they also run a group for those with learning and other disabilities on Tuesdays 1-2pm here at ROAR.

They continue to energise audiences at many events in the local community and beyond, with their uplifting performances and workshops.

Previously operating under Open Minds Theatre Company and the leadership of Amy Cawthorn, they are now volunteer-led, working under the umbrella of ROAR.
