SoundSport®, in partnership with the Kidsgrove Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps of Staffordshire, United Kingdom, is pleased to announce SoundSport Bristol England, Europe’s first officially-sanctioned SoundSport® event.
“We are thrilled to expand the SoundSport brand into Europe,” DCI Director of Business Development John DeNovi said. “This event will engage not just the active marching ensembles in the area, but to also provide new performance opportunities to ensembles that don’t currently have an outlet from which to showcase the remarkable talents of their performers.”
SoundSport Bristol England will take place the evening of Saturday, March 21, at the Sports Hall of SGS College in Filton, Bristol. SGS College has staged many successful performing arts shows over the years, and their modern facilities include a café, bar and ample parking. Additionally, the campus is close to the M4 motorway.
The event is slated to start at 7 p.m. GMT, and will feature a growing number of performing ensembles, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We have already received an overwhelming amount of interest from groups wishing to take part in this event,” said Andy Hewlett, the organizer of SoundSport Bristol England. “Ensembles which haven’t performed in the UK in nearly 20 years have contacted us looking to participate! This is as exciting for us as it will be for them.”
