Drummers March to Save Lewisham Hospital

A group of Pandemonium Drummers joined a protest march in support of Lewisham Hospital together with performers from other London 2012 Ceremonies segments, such as the NHS nurses.

Lewisham Hospital faces the closure of its A&E and maternity wards, and thousands of people rallied together on 26th January to speak out against this move.

Last year, Danny Boyle, the Creative Director of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, emphasised the importance of the protest culture, and his ceremony celebrated the NHS as a valued national achievement.

The participation of the drummers along with other ceremonies cast is therefore a sign of the continuing legacy of London 2012 in its various forms.

ABOUTPandemonium Drummers

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.
