The most rock 'n' roll charity auction is back for Christmas 2018!
12 Drummers Drumming, in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, is your chance to bid for lots donated by the world's best drummers. This year, we have a true drummer's dream up for grabs... Nicko McBrain's entire drum kit from Iron Maiden's 2006 A Matter of Life and Death tour!

Nicko McBrain said:
This drum set has done the world tour, the whole lot, so please dig deep in your pockets to bid for the item. Money raised will support young people diagnosed with cancer so they don't have to face it alone, particularly at this festive time of the year.
You could also choose to bid on the custom drum kit used by Mat Nicholls from #TeenageCancerGigs alumni, Bring Me The Horizon, used on the band's North America tours from 2015 to 2017. Or even signed drum heads from the likes of Phil Collins, Deep Purple's Ian Paice, and Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith... the choice is yours!
"Teenage Cancer Trust is so privileged to have the support of these world class drummers and can't thank them enough for donating such brilliant pieces for auction," said Jane Ashton, Head of Music and Entertainment at Teenage Cancer Trust. "A huge thank you to the team at Remo too as we couldn't have pulled this together without them."
To see the drumming community coming together to do their bit in support of young people with cancer is very special.
"Every penny raised will go towards providing life changing care to young people who are having to deal with being diagnosed with cancer," said Jane.
Christmas is a time for family and friends, laughter and celebration, not cancer. But thousands of young people will face cancer this Christmas and Teenage Cancer Trust will be there to support them during the festive season and all year-round, thanks to your support of 12 Drummers Drumming.
