About palace drum clinic

The Palace Drum Clinic (PDC) was born from the popular UK National Drum Fair (NDF) which ran from 2002-2015. After 14 annual, high profile industry-led Drum Fair events, the NDF decided to continue to offer an education programme for the Midlands drumming community.

As a result, the Palace Drum Clinic was launched in May 2017 at the Palace Theatre, Redditch.

Matthew Green, PDC’s founder, has been a professional percussionist and teacher for 22 years which enables PDC to attract a high calibre of musicians and featured artists. To date PDC has featured some of the UK’s best percussionists including; Pete Lockett, Dougie Wright and Neal Wilkinson.

Since 2017, PDC has run 19 sessions, welcomed 18 guest artists, 6 showcase players, sold over 400 tickets, an average of 20 at each session to all ages, sexes and backgrounds and given away over £1000 of free drumming gear from sponsors such as Liberty Drums and Remo.
