Rob will be performing on the Saturday at 2:00pm playing on 3 vintage kits from 3 different eras and anyone who has seen Rob in a clinic will know it’ll be a must see event for vintage enthusiasts and the general public alike.

Our first show held in September 2017 was a huge success. All 26 stalls fully sold out and traders reported a great weekend. We learned a lot from our first outing and are returning for our 2018 show which will see some positive tweeks and improvements. We hope you'll join us once again! We're taking bookings for stalls right now, see below.

The Show

Simon John's Vintage Drum Show is an annual event organised, promoted and managed by drummers for drummers to provide an opportunity for the display, promotion, trading of drums, associated products/items and drumming skills to be available to the drummers and potential drummers of the UK and beyond. It is a non-profit organisation and seeks to be self-funding.

The 2018 show will be held over the weekend of 13th and 14th October at the Standard Triumph Club in Coventry.

City of Coventry

A fascinating city in its own right, Coventry is right at the heart of the English Midlands - close to Birmingham, Leicester and the historic towns of Worcester, Leamington and Stratford upon Avon.

The city of Lady Godiva is steeped in history - it was briefly the capital of England in the 15th century - and with two universities and a population of 300,000, it offers plenty of culture including the Coventry Music Museum and some lively nightlife and live music in the nearby suburb of Earlsdon.

Been there, done that, now get the T Shirt!

One of the big surprises at last year's show was the demand for Vintage Drum Show merchandise featuring the logo. All we had were a dozen T shirts!

After repeated requests for beanie hats, hoodies, even badges and stickers we're giving in and will be offering a selection of goodies at the show. You will also be able to get them on line right here. Watch this space!
