The Festival, traditionally held in the magnificent Blackpool Tower Ballroom, celebrated it’s 50th birthday in 2007 and incorporates the British Junior Open Championships. In 2010 the Festival moved to the Winter Gardens, Empress Ballroom.  As tradition states, the Festival always commences on Easter Monday finishing seven days later on the Sunday. There are two age groups of children – Juveniles (6 to under 12 years) and Juniors (12 to under 16 years). There are three branches of dancing – Latin American, Ballroom and Sequence. Over the seven days there are 29 competitions, four Team Matches and three Formation Competitions. In 2017 there were over 33 countries represented at the Festival with over 400 couples,  8 Sequence Formation Teams and 94 Latin/Ballroom Formation Team’s entered in the various events.
