DCUK Championships In Widnes Since 2013

| |

In 2013 the DCUK British Drum Corps Championships moved to a new home – the Halton Stadium in Widnes, Cheshire. The venue is currently the home ground of Rugby League side Widnes Vikings of the Betfred Championship, and American football side Halton Spartans of the BAFA National Leagues (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DCBL_Stadium).

The stadium has had a couple of name changes over the past 9 years – between 2013 and 2018 was called Select Security Stadium and now it is known as DCBL Stadium – and we are extremely pleased to confirm it will be the event venue once again when we return in 2022, after a two year hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic, for the 41st British Drum Corps Championships.

There have been 26 Corps that have competed in Finals competition at the stadium and over the next few weeks we will feature video highlights of the last performances made at the venue by all these units:-

Whilst there has been no competitive Drum Corps events in the UK since September 2019 we hope these videos will bring back great memories as we prepare to be back to live shows really soon.

The full versions of all the performances we will feature are available to watch 24/7 via our video portal UK Fan Network – www.ukfannetwork.org – and subscription start from just £9.99 for a years worth of unlimited viewing.
