In 1987, Southbank Centre was privileged to receive a beautiful Javanese percussion orchestra called gamelan. This was a remarkable gift from the Government of the Republic of Indonesia to the people of the UK as a gesture of friendship.
As is the case with many important gamelan ensembles, ours was named: 'Kyai Lebdha Jiwa' or 'The Venerable Spirit of Perfection'.
For Key Stage 2 (Years 3 – 6).
Suitable for groups of up to 35 primary school students.
These free workshops for Lambeth primary schools are not available to book online. To book, call Southbank Centre's group booking line on 020 7960 4225 (Monday – Friday, 9.30am – 5.30pm,) with your preferred date and class details and quote 'Lambeth Schools Gamelan Offer'.
Schools are limited to one workshop booking per term.
