Please use the Bank Hey Street entrance on both days (the one facing Primark.)
Blackpool Tower operate a strict policy on public not taking own food/drink into the Ballroom and will conduct bag searches at a check point between the main entrance and the Ballroom entrance. They will allow a 1 x 500ml bottle of water per person to be brought in. For any medical conditions that require own food to be brought, please contact the Tower directly who will make arrangements for this to be permitted.
Please remember to bring your wristbands and have them securely fastened on your wrist ready for our door staff to check. Any lost or damaged bands will not be replaced.
Wristbands will be available to purchase on the door priced £20 for 1-day & £25 for 2-days.
If you have an unused 1-day wristband that you would like to upgrade to a 2-day wristband, this can be arranged with our door staff. The cost is £6.50 to upgrade.

The above timetable has been calculated based on previous events. We are going to be trialling a new system where we message the recall numbers directly to teachers prior to us calling them out which should speed up the recall process. This will hopefully keep us running slightly earlier than the advertised times so please be ready to dance from 30 minutes prior to the start time given. Our aim is to finish closer to 8pm if possible.
Each of the listed sections will run as follows
As many of you will know, once our entries have been received and processed, we often adapt the programme slightly to best cater for everyone taking part. Please note the following
Help us to help you!
There are many ways that dancers and parents can help us to keep the event timetable running smoothly.

Supervision of Children
Please can we remind parents that you are responsible for the supervision of your children whilst at the competition. They must be with you at all times.
That’s everything for now! If you have any further queries, please direct these to your teacher who will either answer them or contact us to check. It would be appreciated if dancers/parents didn’t contact us directly
