Main Competition

Teams entering the main competition are split between three categories; Premier, Championship and Open. Teams will dance in five competition pubs across Sheffield, each with their own discerning set of judges.

Veterans

The Veterans competition at Yellow Arch features teams with a combined age of 250 years or more. The Adrienne Moss Trophy is awarded to the highest scoring team in this competition.
