Marching Drummers

The Pandemonium drums were constructed as mobile instruments. Some drummers therefore use them to join various marches.

This Saturday, 20th October 11am-1.30pm, some volunteer drummers will bring their instruments to the A Future That Works march from Embankment to Hyde Park.

The following Wednesday, 24th October approx. 12noon-2pm, a group of drummers in full Industrial Revolution costume will join the Suffragettes from the Olympic Opening Ceremony for the Feminist Lobby rally in Westminster. The Suffragettes will perform their complete Opening Ceremony routine, which was only partly televised and is a performance in its own right.

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.
