With Guy Fawkes Night out of the way, we have five remaining dates in November with appearances of Pandemonium Drummers. All dates feature very different events, thus showcasing our versatility and entertainment value:
- Thursday, 8th November
(this is a surprise event)
At a closed event, we will surprise a group of people somewhere in London. We will join the Working Men and Women, who did the fantastic job of changing the set at the Olympic Opening Ceremony.
- Friday, 9th November
Party for Young People in Care
Newham Council organises a party for young people in care. We will join the volunteer cast from Second to the right, and straight on till morning (NHS) and frankie & june say... Thanks Tim from the Olympic Opening Ceremony, and we hope to engage and inspire the young people.
- Thursday, 15th November
A very reduced cast will attempt to re-enact the Olympic Ceremonies in five minutes (or something along those lines) from a Pandemonium Drummer perspective at Ignite London in Brick Lane.
The last chance to snap up one of the free tickets is on 8th November at 12.30pm - but you've got to be quick!
- Saturday, 17th November, 1.15pm
St Paul's Cathedral
St Paul's Cathedral's steps will form a formidable stage for our drumming - this is a very public event, so please come along. We are honoured that St Paul's gave us 45 minutes, and we hope it will not rain!
- Friday, 30th November
Celebrate the Olympic Games with the Games Makers
Finally, a small cast of drummers plus Working Men and Women joins a range of other Olympians, from Games Makers via Torch Bearers to London 2012 workforce at the National Film & Television School Beaconsfield for a fundraising event for the Cure Parkinsons Trust.
Details for Tickets
The Pandemonium Drummers were originally put together by London 2012 Ceremonies for the Pandemonium segment of Danny Boyle's spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremony. Following the Ceremony, the volunteer drummers kept on performing at a variety of events.
Based on their extensive training, they performed at other Opening Ceremonies, including the UEFA Champions League Final 2013, the FA Cup Final 2014, and the Heineken Cup Final 2014, and at a variety of large and small festivals as well as sports and community events. The Pandemonium Drummers are a returning act in London's major parades, including the London New Years' Day Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade, and the Lord Mayor's Show, and they coined Cheer Drumming, supporting runners at major sports events across the capital and beyond. The Pandemonium Drummers have supported the Special Olympics, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and a wide range of other charities.
The Pandemonium Drummers are a constituted association with charitable aims, and are working on a non-profit basis as volunteers.
