A 'LEARNING revolution' started off in London's East End this week with a bang.

The 'learning festival' for new skills through hobbies was launched at Spitalfields Old Market yesterday with a Dohl Drumming & Percussion workshop.

Members of Emergency Exit Arts street arts company helped the curious like Natasha Small (pictured) try their hand at playing Indian dohl drums, marimba and tuned percussion instruments.

They even got the chance to make their own percussion instruments to take home.

Activities got off the ground for the national campaign with hobbies, clubs and evening classes up and down the country covering everything from sports and art to car maintenance and rambling, organised by Learning Revolution education organisation.

A singing workshop is planned back at Spitalfields tomorrow (Thurs) at 12 noon, with the H2 Dance Company and its community choir taking wannabe singers through vocal 'warm ups' to learn original songs for a live performance with an audience at 2pm.
