Magical Drumming at the London New Years Day Parade

30 Magical Years was the motto of the 2016 London New Years Day Parade, and we were invited back for the 4th year in a row.

We interpreted the motto by turning our drumsticks into magic rhythmic wands and dressing in wizard capes, topped off with our iconic lightbulb hats from the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony.

Supported by our London 2012 volunteer friends, the Ceremonies Dancers, we paraded along Piccadilly via Trafalgar Square and Whitehall to Parliament Square, along with other spectacular floats from the London Boroughs and impressive performance groups from London and the United States.

At dedicated performance points, we lined up to play the Panda Samba, our own dedicated samba-style piece played on our bucket drums.

The parade presenters highlighted the power of our positive energy in their commentary.

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.
