Venue address: Grazeley Village Memorial Hall, Reading, RG7 1LD
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is One Day Drum Shop?
A. One Day Drum Shop is a 'pop up' type event, with independent drum retailers setting up their products & services in a local hall for drummers to browse and buy.
There is also the opportunity to connect with other drummers, ask for advice and generally geek out on all things drum related!
Q. What will I be able to buy?
A. A lot of the drum stuff available will be second hand, it it's difficult to predict exactly what will be available, however, you can expect stands, cymbals, hardware, snare drums and perhaps some drum kits.
There will also be new gear available, including Code & Remo drum heads, SlapKlatz drum dampeners & Vic Firth sticks, plus some cymbal ranges.
We will also have guests exhibiting and selling their products and services.
At our first events, we were joined by The Cambridge Drum Company, Impression Cymbals, Skins Drum Performance Method and RJR Custom Drums.
Q. Anything else...?
A. Dave from Dave's Drums will be available for advice and to drop off items for repair (for collection later).
There may be free workshops/clinics on offer. And of course, there'll be other drummers to connect with.
Q. Is there an admission charge?
A. No, there is no charge to attend, and there is plenty of free parking available.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we do require you to book a (free) ticket in advnace for a timed entry slot.
Q. Can I join you as an exhibitor/seller?
A. Generally, yes. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we may not be able to accomodate external sellers in the immediate future.
Q. Is this a one-day-only event?
A. One Day Drum Shop is a pop-up event which we host every few months (pandemics allowing!).
