Meet the team

The Metronomes community is made up of people from all over the world – over 2000 of them live across North Kensington and the surrounding areas. Each summer over 100 steelpan players and supporters join us at our rehearsal space, the panyard, for the Panorama season. Throughout the year players of the stageside, Metro Academy and adult beginners rehearse the band’s repertoire in the panyard each week.

Meet the team of volunteers and band members that keep it all running smoothly.
