Virtual panyard

Welcome to Metronomes Virtual Panyard!

While our panyard is temporarily closed, we have set up our Virtual Panyard to provide a service to the Metronomes family and the whole community.

We are putting the finishing touches to our programme ahead of our launch date. It’s coming soon!

We will be using our Instagram account, combined with Facebook. We will also be adding podcasts.

All our activities will be produced while strictly following the government’s stay at home guidance.

Join with Metronomes: Stay at home, be social online, and enjoy steelpan music!

Stay At Home.

Protect The NHS.

Save Lives.

Steelpan Instagram Jamming!

Wednesday & Friday night at 7.30pm

Sunday Children’s Reading Club

Every Sunday 2.00pm

Watch the reading in a live story on our Instagram account.

There will be a selection of prose and poetry readings for children on our Instagram account (a live story). It will be Caribbean themed, but all are welcome! 


The Virtual Panyard Podcast

We will very shortly be launching our weekly Virtual Panyard Podcast, hosted by some of the familiar faces at Metronomes.

We’ll be talking steelpan and community news. We want people to share the hashtag #virtualpanyard on social media posts, and also the hashtag #metronomesfamily.

Metronomes is a family, and we are coming together to support each other at this difficult time.

Lots more planned

This is just the beginning. We have lots more planned for out Virtual Panyard. Keep checking the front page of this website, or look out for announcements on Facebook and Instagram.

Share the love!

There will be plenty of opportunities to interact in our Virtual Panyard, and we will be encouraging everybody to talk to each other.

Technical advice

We will be providing technical advice on how to access all our shows and other activities. Essentially, you’ll need an internet connection, a smartphone/tablet/computer and the Instagram and Facebook apps. Your computer/device should be able to play podcasts.
