Gymnastics British Championships

The Championships will move next door, to the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, taking place across the same dates

The Artistic British Championships will be moving next door in 2023, from the M&S Bank Arena to its sister venue, the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. The dates for the Championships remain the same.

As you may have seen recently in the press, Liverpool has been confirmed as the host city for Eurovision 2023. Due to the complexity and scale of the event, the M&S Bank Arena needs to make alternative arrangements for shows in the run up to it. As long-standing partners of the arena, we’re helping them to make these changes by moving the Championships next door.

How you may be affected, however, is with buying tickets and with accommodation. We will have fewer seats on sale for the event and would encourage you to buy sooner rather than later, to avoid any disappointment.                                                                                                                                       
As there are likely to be other events on at the same time as the British Championships, we anticipate that the city will have more demand for accommodation. Therefore again, we recommend that you pre-book as soon as you can, as demand will be high.

Here are some other FAQs that might help explain more about the event itself.
