Doc 'n Roll Festival

Drummers’ Film Club

Every few months, a group of Elephant Drums members get together for a screening of a film involving drums, drummers or music in general. It is a great way to relax and socialise with other drummers learning drums. The screenings usually involve a visit to the cinema bar or a nearby pub before or after, depending on the time of the showing. Occasionally, film club members host a film screening at one of their houses.

November 2018 is a busy month for the film club because not only is it the annual London Doc ‘n Roll Festival showing a host of film premieres of the best music documentaries from around the world, 2018 also sees the release of the music movie of the year – Bohemian Rhapsody (the biopic about Freddie Mercury and Queen).

If you’re a Drum Pass member please let us know which film you are most interested in going to see so we can organise the group tickets to the screening.
