We will drum on the steps in front of St Paul's Cathedral's west front. It will be a drums-only jam-style session without soundtrack and in a variety of costumes. The display will of course be totally free of charge, but please try to spot and use the buckets for Children in Need (subject to confirmation) that will be placed somewhere nearby.
If you weren't in the stadium for the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, this is your chance to experience the effect that a number of drums will create! See us up close, have a chat and get your photo taken with our iconic Lightbulb Bowler Hats from the Olympic Closing Ceremony.
We are eternally grateful to St Paul's for inviting us.
We will drum until about 2pm. Times are approximate and somewhat dependent on reasonably dry weather.

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.
