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!

Last Station St Pancras International

As a year like no other draws to a close, the Pandemonium Drummers will have one final public outing:
On Thursday 20th December 2012 from 7pm at St Pancras International.

Piano, Voice & Drums 

This performance will be more than drumming: We will make use of the permanent Street Pianos and play & sing a few seasonal songs plus classic hits, in Pandemonium jam style.

Of course, we will also feature the song that millions know us by: And I Will Kiss from Underworld, in a special piano plus drums version, but clearly recognisable as the lead tune of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

We will be joined by the Olympic Working Men and Women, the volunteer performers who implemented the biggest set change in theatre history by removing turf, dismantling houses and building machinery - they will do their choreography to the song.

Drumming & Singing for Charity

Our final performance in 2012 will be in support of two charities: The Mo Farah Foundation and NAPAC, so please look out for the official collection buckets and give generously.

Meet us in the Arcade

You will find us in the Arcade area of St Pancras International Station, we will most likely use the Street Piano near The White Company / Hamley's.

We will start playing at about 7pm and might continue until 9pm.

Join us for a final celebration of a wonderful year, and feel free to sing along!

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.
