Welcome to the Pandemonium Drummers!

Charitable amateur performance group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things:

Community events, parades, festivals, happenings, specatulars, stadium performances.
We started life as the Volunteer Drummers in the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
Big developments ahead in the coming months!

At St Paul's Cathedral for Children in Need

A group of 30 Pandemonium Drummers drummed on the steps in front of St Paul's Cathedral today and raised almost £250 around £300, perhaps even more, for Children in Need.

About half of the drummers appeared in the Industrial Revolution costume from the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, whereas the other half featured the Closing Ceremony costume with the iconic lightbulb bowler hats. This enabled us to stage a drum-off, with the Brunels (Industrial Revolutionists) versus the 'Bluenells' (blue bowler hats).

This event was made possible by one of our drummers, who works at St Paul's and managed to get us a permission to play. Our thanks go to the staff of St Paul's Cathedral, who were very welcoming hosts.

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.
