Well, the first ever One Day Drum Shop is over.
And what a day we had!
After a gig the night before for at least 2 of those involved, it was an early, wet and cold start to the day!
We arrived at the hall at around 10am to start setting up, and were just about ready in time for midday, with dozens waiting patiently in the rain!
The hall was busy with people trying, shopping, chatting and drinking coffee (and tea) for the next few hours.
We've had loads of positive feedback and are already planning the next event on Sunday 5th May (see below).

We were thrilled to be approached by The Cambridge Drum Company would love to share what they do with Berkshire's drummers. They'll be bringing a kit and some snares, as well as colour samples.
Visitors to One Day Drum Shop will be able to discuss how Cambridge can create the kit of their dreams, or to buy one of their gorgeous, UK-made snare drums.
The Cambridge Drum Company was founded in 2014 by Ian Croft, to give the drummer a genuine, bespoke, British made drum kit at an affordable price, where you can be involved in the process from beginning to end.
Every Cambridge drum shell is made by hand from scratch - nothing generic here!
Cambridge offer a massive range of truly sumptuous veneer & lacquer finishes for you to choose from...
