About Northern Steel Network

Founded in 2016, Northern Steel Network is a central hub for Steelbands and Steelpan players in the North East of England offering support, advice and education. Our aim is to advance the education of the public by encouraging the teaching, practice and performance of Steelpan music and Caribbean Culture.

Each year we organise:

  • The Northern Steel Network Festival –  a celebration of the advancement of pan in the region which is open to all bands and schools.
  • Tuning visits – we work closely with Toussaint Clark and normally organise 3 tuning visits per year.
  • Outreach Instruments
  • Guest Tutor Workshops
  • Tuition – either one off or regular sessions
