Welcome to the Pandemonium Drummers!

Charitable amateur performance group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things:

Big developments ahead in the coming months!

Chinese New Year Parade 2013

The Year of the Snake started successfully with loud drumbeats from our decorated bins and buckets on 10th February, as we participated in the Chinese New Year Parade from Trafalgar Square to Chinatown.

As opposed to the London New Year's Day Parade, we appeared in our Industrial Revolution outfits, as we were joined by the Working Men and Women, one of whom assumed the Brunel role, from the Pandemonium segment of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

While we made our way to Chinatown, the Working Men and Women performed parts of their original choreography to our rhythms.

To complete the Olympic theme, several Games Makers accompanied us, parading our banner.

We were impressed by the reaction on Twitter, which demonstrates that people love to be reminded of Danny Boyle's wonderful ceremony.

Two of our emerging house photographers covered the event with fantastic photos:

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.

  1. Got there just in time to catch you. Shame I missed in you in the end. Got distracted by the rain and the buzz of Chinatown.

    Now looking forward to the next event to snap away.
