Welcome to the Pandemonium Drummers!

Charitable amateur performance group of ordinary people doing extraordinary things:

Going 'Back Home' for the Sport Relief Games 2016

The Pandemonium Drummers will be returning once again to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 20th March to entertain the crowds and cheer on competitors during the Sport Relief Games 2016.

With our bucket drums, signature blue bowler hats and some energising beats, our task will be to spur on the participants as they make their way round the course  raising money for a worthy cause.  

We will be doing  what we call "Cheer-Drumming" - which is along the lines of cheer-leading except we have drums instead of pom-poms, beats instead of chants and some limited choreography - high kicks are impractical whilst having percussion strapped on!

This will be our second appearance at the Sport Relief Games as we also drummed at the previous time it was held in 2014.  They asked us back so we must be doing something right!

More about Sport Relief

Sport Relief is back from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th March and there are more ways than ever for you to take part, change lives and feel proud. Whether you get sponsored to enter an event at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school you’ll help people living incredibly tough lives. In fact, half of all the money raised by the public is spent right here at home in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.

There’ll also be tons of top telly for you to look out for, across the BBC, in the run-up to the Sport Relief Weekend. It all culminates in an unmissable Night of Sport Relief TV, live from Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Find out more at sportrelief.com.

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.
