BBC Breakfast drumming on 10th September

In the run-up to the Our Greatest Team Parade, the parade celebrating Team GB and Paralympic GB, the Pandemonium Drummers will make two appearances:

At around 8:50am, we are scheduled to appear on BBC Breakfast, where drumming co-ordinator Mike Dolbear will talk about getting us volunteer drummers ready to play at the Olympic Opening Ceremony.

Later in the day, we plan to entertain the expectant crowd at or around Trafalgar Square while waiting for the parade to pass by. Not only will we bring our drums, but also our famous lightbulb bowler hats from the Olympic Closing Ceremony. There will be photo opportunities for the public.

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.
