The 2018 London Drum Show is just days away, and it's set to be the best yet. Expect a stellar line-up, a packed-out gear hall and a whole host of inspiring features to enjoy, from getting your head around headphones to becoming a master of microphones.
Advance tickets are cheaper than paying on the door, so make sure you get yours by midnight on Friday.
The Story Behind The Badge with BDC
British Drum Co. Managing Director Al Murray, in his own inimitable style, will take you on a journey through the fascinating story of the British Drum Company. From the earliest days as a fledgling start-up, he will look closely at the significant developments they encountered on their way to becoming the world-renowned brand you see today. Kasabian drummer and BDC partner Ian Matthews will also be in attendance to answer questions and demonstrate their drums. It’s going to be informal, informative and a lot of fun!
