Indoor Music Games are pleased to announce the dates of the 2022 IMG Shows which will be as follows: –
WGI UK Regional, Bristol. 26/27 February
IMG North, Venue TBC. 12/13 March
IMG Leicestershire. Sat 30 April
IMG Essex. Sat 14 May
The 2022 season will be the first IMG shows since 2019, as shows in 2020 and 21 weren’t able to take place due to the Covid 19 epidemic. IMG Secretary Greg Small commented “We’re delighted to be back again in 2022, with a full season of events which covers a large area of the country. This should enable as many participants as possible to take advantage of our performance opportunities.”
“We realise that many bands and corps are just getting back together or rebuilding after Covid, so we’re bringing in a number of measures to help them with this. Firstly all participants are welcome to perform in exhibition rather than in competition if they wish to. This will enable them to perform in a no pressure environment, where they can introduce new members to the activity. Also we will be keeping costs to zero for all participants. IMG has never charged for membership or registrations, but this year we will also waive contest entry fees, which will make our events as accessible as possible.”
The Indoor Music Games are about achieving the best combination of both excellence and spectator enjoyment. It also aims to provide performance and competition opportunities to younger performers where they can grow and develop in a safe environment, whilst giving them an enjoyable and educational experience. As IMG competitions are open to all, IMG groups can be Performance Ensembles, Brass bands, Wind bands, Alumni corps, small drum corps/marching bands, School or College bands, etc.
The IMG also offers marching bands the opportunity to compete much earlier in the year, so those who wish to can then go on to participate in the summer season. Shows will again feature Winds, Percussion, Music Ensemble and Concert Classes in the 2022 shows, with Music Ensemble and Concert Classes using the Gold, Silver or Bronze award placing system.
