THE thundering rhythms of the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers will return to Mansfield Palace Theatre next month as part of their UK tour.

The show, on 4th October at 7.30pm, promises mysterious masked choreography with inventive lighting, muscular synchronisation timed to perfection, post-apocalyptic martial imagery and infectious belly laugh humour.

Last year the drummers thrilled the 40,000-strong audience at London’s Proms in the Park, as well as pushing the boundaries in collaboration with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra at the London Jazz Festival.

They also performed at the Palace in 2010 as part of the theatre’s centenary celebrations.

Tickets are priced £18 with concessions for £16. They are available from the box office on Mansfield 633133, or you can select your seat online at www.mansfield.gov.uk/palacetheatre
