Stephen Sutton was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and one of the items on his bucket list was to drum in front of a huge audience.
Thanks to London 2012 drum co-ordinator Mike Dolbear, he joined us for the gig with our biggest live audience to date: the UEFA Champion's League Final Opening Ceremony at Wembley Stadium!
Watch this video to learn more about Stephen's Story and how he experienced the massive Opening Ceremony at Wembley among a 400-strong group of Pandemonium Drummers and other volunteer performers.
Just after the gig, Stephen was made a Honorary Pandemonium Drummer and received an original bucket drum from the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Please support Stephen's fundraising campaign for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
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.
