Batala Lancaster are a community samba reggae drumming band based in Lancaster, and drawing members from the surrounding areas. As well as playing at events locally and nationally, Batala Lancaster is part of Batala Mundo, a family of sister bands based around the world, comprising over 1,000 members who regularly join together to play at international events.

We play at many events in the local area, such as galas, carnivals, festivals and charity events, as well as nationally and internationally at festivals and parades such as Kendal Calling, Notting Hill Carnival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

We take on new players each autumn and rehearse every Monday evening at Ellel Village Hall, Galgate. For more information about Batala Lancaster, including upcoming gigs and how to book or join the band visit
