Steel Pantastic

In the afternoons the Crown Place Community Centre in Worksop is taken over by a booming steel band whose energetic renditions of popular tunes and Hawaiian dress code are quite unexpected in Worksop.
These are not professional musicians, just groups of retired and semi-retired folk who come together to share their interests, passions and talent. They are all members of the University of the Third Age (U3A), a self-funded organisation providing activities for men and women no longer in full time employment.

Pat Durrant, a founding member tells us, “Steel Pantastic have been going for about 8 half years. We started with 5 members with some old pans. We now have 22 members. The steel band was started by members who had an interest in the music.”

“You don’t have to read music or anything, just have a grasp of rhythm.” “I have been to the Caribbean and seen the steel pans played. It’s just amazing. We have 19 drummers in our group but I’ve watched bands with so many drums you couldn’t count them.” Many people don’t know such a thing exists in Worksop. But the band is spreading the unique sound of the steel drum at various performances. It’s not done for profit. We are a registered charity and all money raised is used to cover expenses of the band. Just to retune the pans costs 1,000.

The Escafeld Society

escafeld1

The “Escafeld Mediaeval Society” was formed in 1973 and so far has enjoyed almost 35 years of displays in Yorkshire and further afield in Wales and Scotland.

The Escafeld Mediaeval Society exists to portray events as they may have occurred at a mediaeval foot tournament and other associated displays during the 13th century. Whilst this might sound a very narrow and specialised period it offers great flexibility both to participants and our clients. The Society boasts knights, sergeants-at-arms, archers, ladies and squires. The Society is family friendly too, we have members of all ages and backgrounds. All members are encouraged to develop their individual interest in the period and apply it to our displays and the potential of each member is limited only by their own enthusiasm.

Escafeld has performed for many different occasions and has had the pleasure of performing for English Heritage and CADW at such breathtaking sites as Conisborough, Castle Rising and Caernarfon.

 

Escafeld is the pre-Norman name for Sheffield. The name didn’t change from Escafeld as much as evolve. The Saxon word Esc is pronounced esh, knowing that, say Escafeld very quickly lots and lots and you will get Sheffield. Centuries ago many people could not write let alone spell, so it was often the spoken word was the only way things could be recorded.
