YOUNG DANCERS from Beverley have come third in the world street dance championships, held in Blackpool. The BDC Royals (pictured below), who train at Base Fitness on the Phoenix Enterprise Park in Riverview Road, were representing England, with the winners and runners-up coming from Belgium and Germany.

They were competing in the Under 16s class of the competition, organised by the United Dance Organisation and were up against a total of 24 teams. As England’s representatives they were already regarded as the best street dance crew in the country. The Base Dance Company is now enrolling for new sessions starting in September – more details via their Facebook page.


A UKRAINIAN Independence Day celebration and fund-raising event at the Armstrong Centre in Beverley, organised by the Hull and East Riding Ukrainian Community and Hull 4 Ukraine, proved a popular attraction, with a packed hall viewing traditional Ukrainian food, jewellery and gift items with visitors able to try traditional cakes and pastries. A selection of photographs from the event can be viewed below.


BEVERLEY Film Society begins its new World Cinema season, with screenings at the Parkway Cinema, on September 14 with a comic drama from Spain, called “The Good Boss”. The society will be showing 13 films this season including three that are free for members.
