    Olympic Opening Ceremony

    It cannot get any bigger than that. As volunteer performers, we trained hard to deliver the greatest show on earth and turn Danny Boyle's vision into reality. And we did.

    I was a drummer in the Pandemonium segment, which turned the Green and Pleasant Land into an industrial landscape, displaying the Industrial Revolution with all its transformative power.

    My drum was a long bass bin, a decorated version of Sankey's 80-litre dustbins, played with tennis-ball-topped sticks.

    I was also an Athlete's Marshal during the Athlete's Parade, ending up as one of the lucky few who were guarding the iconic Cauldron when it was lit. I can vividly remember the hiss of the gas pipes and the heat of the flames.
