Olympic Drummers at the National TV Awards

Following a comedy take on the Olympic Opening Ceremony's James Bond sequence performed by David Walliams and Dermot O'Leary, a group of Olympic drummers opened the National TV Awards show at the O2 Arena, broadcast live on ITV.

The group consisted of original drum captains and other professional drummers from the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

Later in the show, the drummers re-appeared in support of Team GB & Paralympics GB athletes and those who made London 2012, who received a Landmark award, presented by Clare Balding.

Lord Seb Coe, Sir Chris Hoy and David Weir accepted the award on behalf of all London 2012 makers, with Lord Coe acknowledging all volunteers.

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.
