Inside the Yurt: Drumming Session

At the far end of the Patch from the main stage was the yurt.

A yurt is a circular and domed tent, originally used by the nomadic tribes of the Central Asian steppes. A wooden lattice forms the circular vertical walls which support a framework of poles which forms the dome. The framework was covered with thatch or felt or skins, but today there are also canvas versions of the yurt. There is also a hole in the middle of the roof to let smoke escape from the fire. This yurt had a hole, but no fire - I hasten to add.

The yurt in the Patch was the venue for a programme of events for children including singing, story telling and drumming sessions.

This was a great venue for story telling. The off white colour of the canvas filters the light and creates a perfect atmosphere for story telling.
