The drumming and percussion event was held on the balcony of Preston Market, with crowds gathering to try their hand.
The free drop-in sessions allowed visitors to have a go with different types of percussion instruments and drums, including a Latin conga drum, Latin bongo drums, African djembe drums and a didgeridoo.

There were also hand percussion instruments, including shakers and woodblocks.

Coun John Swindells, deputy leader of Preston Council, thanked those who have attended the “extremely popular” events that have taken place this summer.
