Participants come from a wide range of backgrounds including Mini Corps, Performance Ensembles, Marching Bands, Brass Bands and Indoor Percussion Ensembles, as well as one or two groups that actually don't fit into any conventional category!

DCI SoundSport Director John DeNovi said, “We are thrilled with not only the number of participating groups in this inaugural SoundSport Bristol event, but also the diversity. It’s always been our vision to create events that bring together ensembles of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds that give performers an exciting new outlet to show off their talents while providing audiences with a unique and fun up-close experience.” 

The show will mark another significant event as it will be the first time that a Scottish and Irish Corps have met in competition in 20 years, the last occasion being the DCUK Cumbernauld show in Scotland in 1995. Blue Barons Corps Director Greg Small said “It has been a while but finally the mists are rolling back for the Barons. It’s show time and we are cranking up the intensity of rehearsals to get ourselves in shape for this the inaugural UK SoundSport event."

Further details including ticketing arrangements will be announced shortly.
