The Corps will arrive on Thursday September 18th and will staying in Wilmslow at the Wilmslow Phoenix Sports Club.
Harrold de Raad, Tour Manager from Juliana says: “We try to make travels abroad more often. In 2011 and 2013 we took a 10-day trip to Italy and the members loved it. The members and staff are very excited to compete at DCUK Finals in 2014. It was about time, a Dutch Corps travelled to the UK. Also, it is a great possibility to get some more feedback from the audience and the judges before we go to the DCE Championships.
It has been over 15 years since a Dutch Drum Corps has travelled to the UK to compete at a DCUK Event. The last time Juliana came to DCUK was in 1997 where they competed in the A-Class.
Alan Thompson, on behalf of Drum Corps United Kingdom, added “We are delighted to welcome Juliana back to the UK and are really pleased that the previous Drum Corps Netherlands Champion Corps (DCN Champions in 2010, 2011 & 2012) will be adding to the spectacle and excitement on Saturday 20th September at the Select Security Stadium in Widnes for the 35th British Drum Corps Championships.”
