Event Information

Joined by 4 fabulous judges Dre, Aaliyah, Hollie & Fidget for our final event of 2023, we are looking forward to an action packed day of Solos, Duos & Team sections for all ages! This is a special event for us every year as it is the last one of the year for us. There is guaranteed to be lots of Christmas music and we would love to see everyone in the Christmas jumpers & accessories!!!

We have now processed the entries for this event and are able to bring you a full schedule, age categories and some more information. Please see below the info you need to help you plan your time with us. The day will be split into 4 main sections (7 years & under, 9 years & under, 11 years & under, 13 years & under) with a couple of presentations across each section to cater for dancers that overlap in more than one section.

As previously communicated with teachers dancers should only attend for sections they are dancing in. Please check with your teacher when to arrive as those dancing in teams may be in a different section for their solo events. 

Please note that due to the new layout for seating in the room, if you arrive whilst a team section are dancing, we may ask you to wait downstairs for a few minutes until they have finished that section.

Parking- As the venue is in the town centre, there is lots of on street parking around the venue, most of which is free on Sundays.

Food & Drink Policy– The venue has a bar serving hot & cold drinks all day. Hot dogs will be available and a tuck shop. Packed lunches are permitted to be brought inside the ballroom but can we kindly ask everyone to clear away any rubbish before they leave. Please don’t bring hot takeaway food or drink inside. Downstairs at the venue is a new large café area also serving drinks and this is also a good area to wait if you arrive before your section starts to help us reduce the people in the main room.

Wristbands– Please have your wristbands on and fastened securely before entering the building. Lost, damaged or forgotten wristbands will not be replaced and will have to be re-purchased.  Please see our full wristband policy on the website.
Door wristband availability- Wristbands will be available to purchase as normal from 4pm to anyone attending with a dance school booked onto the event. Anyone wanting to purchase a band prior to this time, will have to be approved by their teacher first so please be prepared to wait. We recommend that nobody turns up on the day to purchase a band on the door without speaking to their teacher first. Wristbands will be £22 on the door.

Photo/Video Policy- A reminder that you are permitted to take photographs and videos of your own dancers whilst they are performing solos & duos. If anyone objects to this, please see us prior to the start of the event. For teams, strictly only 1 nominated person is allowed to record at this time.
