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!

Beyond Theatre Award

Exactly four months ago, the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony made history, and the drumming from 965 of us contributed to the atmosphere.

Millions heard the Pandemonium Drummers for the first time.

Danny Boyle and his creative team have been honoured at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards: They won the Beyond Theatre Award.

The whole team picked up the award, including Musical Director Rick Smith of Underworld, who was the constant voice in our ears during the ceremony.

"What else could possibly win but Danny Boyle’s Olympic Opening Ceremony?" asks Sarah Sands, editor of the Evening Standard.

Congratulations to Danny Boyle and his team!

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.
