Fantastic concert, we had a great view and Gary was amazing. The Winter Gardens is a beautifully restored theatre and makes a great venue. We had a drink in the Galleon bar before the show, very friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

Just simply a stunning venue for dance competitions. The toilets inside the ballroom and practice/ bar area need improvement

One of the UK's foremost dance competitions to pre-amateur level - a long day but well organised and the newly refurbished Winter Gardens is stunning.
