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 2024 show will be held over the weekend of 12th and 13th October at the Standard Triumph Club in Coventry.

City of Coventry

A fascinating city in its own right, Coventry is 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.
