Stoke Contest - 10th January 2016 - Review


On Sunday 10th January the 2016 Winter Guard United Kingdom season "kicked off" at the Fenton Manor Leisure Centre in Stoke On Trent with 24 units in competition across 5 classes.

In the Cadet Class the Avengers Cadets took top spot, out of 6 units, with their Car Wash show whilst with 7 competitors in Junior Class South West Academy took us to the Garden Of Eden to take first place in that class.

The 6 unit A Class saw Mayflower take the early honours as they portrayed their show based around taking The Exam and in Open Class Kidsgrove Scouts came out on top of the 4 competing units with their fast moving Elastic Heart show with Mayflower being the only unit in World Class debuting their Excess Baggage show.

A great start to the new season and an extremely good size audience for the first show made for a fabulous day of entertainment and showed how the UK units continue to impress and push the activity forward.

At the end of the month we are off to a new part of the country for WGUK as we move down south to Clacton in Essex on Sunday 31st January - we look forward to seeing you there.
