Champion's League Final 2013 at Wembley Stadium

The Pandemonium Drummers performed on the turf of Wembley Stadium just before the kick-off of the UEFA Champion's League Final 2013 between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Under the direction of Hamish Jenkinson and led again by London 2012 drum co-ordinator Mike Dolbear, a 320-strong army of shield-batting drummers represented pawns, enacting a chess game between the Munich and Dortmund managers on the turf in Wembley.

The scene also featured archers, medieval knights, flagbearers and two giant gladiators, as well as Joey, the life-size horse puppet from the theatre show War Horse.

Most of the cast were performers from the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremonies. The drummers also included a few Working Men and Women, who ripped out the turf in the Olympic Stadium in July 2012, and we welcomed Stephen in our ranks, a special young man who fulfilled one of his bucket list items with us - read more about Stephen's Story on Facebook.

More details will follow.
