The world record for the most amount of drummers playing together has been smashed by some 50 musicians. The former mark stood at 533 but when 582 participants gathered at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham to play a 5-minute piece together, the record was broken.

Guinness Book of Records sanctioned the entire event which had an underlying message of raising awareness (and some funds) for Multiple Sclerosis. The total amount raised was £20,000.

Musicians came from all over to participate in this event which was a great success and a beautiful memento for those involved and for Multiple Sclerosis awareness.
