UK Government features Pandemonium Drummers in 4th London 2012 Legacy Report

The UK Government and the Mayor of London published the fourth annual report on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games, in which the Pandemonium Drummers again feature as a case study - this time on pages 67 and 68.

The legacy report was published today, just about a week after the release of our new single Champion (click here for details).

The Fourth Annual Legacy Report

Overall, the 92-page document Inspired by 2012: The legacy from the Olympic and Paralympic Games - fourth annual report describes the activities which took place in the fourth year since the Games to build a lasting legacy across a number of commitments, namely sport and healthy living, the regeneration of East London, economic growth, bringing communities together, and the Paralympic legacy.

The report includes a foreword by the new Prime Minister and the new Mayor of London.

The Pandemonium Drummers feature in Chapter 5: Bringing Communities Together as a case study for the cultural legacy including a picture taken by our photographer Vilma Laryea at the London New Years Day Parade 2016.

For our fourth anniversary, we created a veritable milestone: our first new single, Champion, in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust and produced by Felix Buxton of Basement Jaxx!

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.
