IMG look forward to a bigger and better season in 2023

Indoor Music games are pleased to announce plans for a bumper 2023 season and can confirm the following schedule: –

Sun 9th Oct
IMG/WGI Launch/Training Day SGS College, Filton, Bristol.

Sat 11th Mar
IMG Leicestershire Ashby Leisure Centre, Ashby-de-la-Zouch.

Sat 25th Mar
IMG Bedfordshire Venue TBC

Sat 22nd Apr
IMG Bristol SGS College, Filton, Bristol.

Sat 13th May IMG Championships Basildon Sporting Village, Essex

The IMG/ WGI Training Day will be our launch event for the season and, we think, will be the perfect opportunity for people who want to find out more about how IMG events work. The meeting will be held on a hybrid basis, allowing people that are unable to travel to Bristol, to participate via Zoom.

As well as judges from the UK, we will be joined by our friends from WGI via Zoom, who will help overview the Winds and Percussion classes and give further details on the judging system. The day will start at 10am and will be followed by a concert by the Kris Nock Band in the adjoining theatre at 3.30pm. Registration and further details for this event will be published in the next few weeks.

More exciting news for the 2023 season will be released in the coming weeks.

IMG Chairman Andy Hewlett said “I am pleased that we are embracing the lessons learnt over the last three years and hope everyone will take the opportunity to join us either in person or on- line via the open Zoom call”

The 2023 season will consist of four shows, three regional shows and the IMG Championships in May. Each show will provide a Winds, Percussion, Ensemble and Concert Class, as well as opportunities for exhibition performances. IMG will also introduce a Winds and Percussion A Class in order to provide a competition for younger and less experienced groups to participate in these exciting new activities.

Indoor Music games will continue to develop the excellent relationships we have with the British Youth Band Association (BYBA) and the Traditional Youth Marching Bands Association (TYMBA) and will be liaising closely with both on all future events.

Judges Coordinator Paul Morgan said “We can now see the clear skies after a long 2 plus years dealing with the pandemic and it is just brilliant to see so many music groups across the spectrum start to emerge once again. We have a great momentum going into the 2023 season and are already working closely with so many of our friends across the UK. We’re also working with the WGI community and are already gaining international interest from groups wanting to come to the UK to perform at our events. This is a perfect indicator that we can kick start things once again and I look forward to seeing everyone on the circuit and via our launch event on October 9th. Stay safe out there, and happy banding all!”
