What an incredible night this event turned out to be! Contestants from all over the UK had worked very hard with their preparations for their moment of glory. Each contestant came confidently onto the stage; they wowed the packed out Albert Halls with an amazing performance demonstrating strength, grace and fluidity.  

The show was hosted by (shown to the left) UK Champion ‘Miss Pole Dance UK’ Jess Leanne Norris (Owner of JLN Pole Fitness Studios) co-host Mr Sandy Holt UK & European Thai Boxing Champion.

The Judges on the night had an extremely difficult job judging the 4 categories.
