Initially open only to London 2012 volunteers such as Games Makers and Ceremonies Volunteers, our three workshops sold out quickly and were a great success!
A new milestone: our own workshopA dedicated team of 13 Pandemonium Drummers developed and implemented the concept for a full day workshop to give participants a taster of how we were trained to perform in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Participants were introduced to the basics of rhythm keeping through a series of exercises and drills involving clapping, stepping, moving, and actual drumming on our famous plastic and metal buckets - our maintenance shop master Dan created additional bucket drums specially for these workshops.
The day ended with a performance to a shortened version of the actual London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony soundtrack And I Will Kiss.
The feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive, and people had the impression that the workshops were run very professionally and with plenty of passion.
