Please clean your area after use. Separate change rooms are available for male and female performers. We will have a media wall in the LARGE change area and PHOTOS are to be taken on that wall only in the dressing area. PLEASE remember it is a dressing space and there will be children in a state of undress……. Our media wall will be in an area that will be ok for photos.
Please be advised that there is no coffee, tea or hot chocolate in change areas due to performers getting changed and spillage. Parents NO staying in the changing space and chatting… it is get in and get out.
You will notice we have given you a start time, please note we will commence the day sharply at that time. We try to run to time as much as we can and if your performer or troupes are not there we will continue as per order, please note times can change due to acts not showing up. EBSDN will email you a run sheet the morning or the night before the competition, this is so you can keep a LIVE watch on what act numbers we are upto.
