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!

November flurry of activities

The run-up to the festive season has started, and lights are switched on in various parts of London. Cue our iconic lightbulb bowler hats from the Olympic Closing Ceremony:
  • 24 November at 4pm
    Newham Festival of Lights

    A small group of Pandemonium Drummers will lead children from local schools and the public from Newham Town Hall to a stage in Pilgrim Way E6. At about 4.30pm the Newham Mayor Robin Wales will turn on the Christmas Lights at Pilgrims Way.
  • 25 November at 12noon
    Hampstead Christmas Festival

    Celebrating the switching on of the Christmas Lights on Hampstead High Street, London NW3, the Pandemonium Drummers will lead a procession to open the Hampstead Christmas Festival. 

All details are on our Events page.

Photo and Video Shoots with the Pandemonium Drummers

In other news, eleven Pandemonium Drummers were invited to a photo shoot at the London College of Communication earlier this week to support a student project. We will report back once the project is complete.

A group of drummers will join another group of Olympic volunteers for a special video shoot that will hopefully make an impact. That's all we can say at the moment.

A bit of dancing

Finally, the Pandemonium Drummers are by far not the only group of Olympic Ceremonies Volunteer Performers who are still active. One group in particular has secured an appearance at a very prominent location in London this weekend, and a number of drummers will indulge in their marshalling skills and dance with performers from all other segments, such as the NHS Nurses and the Thanks Tim cast. 

But as we were asked and trained to #savethesurprise, we can only release the following teaser:

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.
