Words from the Honorary President

“It was another great weekend at the National Drum Fair, in my home town Birmingham and it was nice to see some new  faces. This is the 11th year and the fair continues to attract more stalls and visitors alike.
As always there were some interesting drum sets of a very high standard on display.
And if you wanted that special part you have been looking for years you will more than likely find it among the stalls  this weekend, that’s for sure.
I visited the show on Sunday and was fortunate to see Clark Tracey playing with his trio, which was really fantastic and also Pete Cater gave a great master class on technique.
I had a good wander round the stalls and meet people I only get to see at the fair.
A a good time was had by all and the “A” team did a great job as always. Yes, I am talking about Garry, Simon and Matt.”
