Gold Media and Events’ owner, Neil Golding, says: ‘Having provided a new venue for the drum and percussion sector in Manchester, with lower rates, cheaper parking, a variety of hotels to cater for all budgets, but maintaining a high quality national show experience for show-going visitors and trade alike, coupled to the fact that we have been most fortunate in obtaining some of the world’s best drumming talent, I feel The UK Drum Show is set to be the destination for drummers and percussionists for 2017.’

Golding revealed that he has just three stands still available for the forthcoming show and that he has not stopped adding new features, or artists, yet!
