The "GBs" is the second-oldest major Irish dancing championship in the World -- only the All Irelands is older -- and we are immensely proud to be the custodians of its traditions.
Having moved to the Butlins Resort in Bognor Regis in 2008, the Southern England Regional Council has worked hard to continue the Great Britain Championships as a unique event in the Irish dancing calendar. Always known as the 'friendly championships', the GBs has long had a reputation for coupling amazing standards of dancing with a real opportunity to renew acquaintances and to make new friends. We sincerely hope you will join us for a fabulous long weekend of Irish dancing and fun.
