Our British Gymnastics Ceremonies Team


Early in 2012 we received a telephone call from British  Gymnastics asking if we would like to be the medal ceremonies team for the British Championships in Liverpool that year........ we said yes and things have developed from there........


From a team of 8 we now have 26 girls & boys who work with the Events Team and volunteer for British Gymnastics at some of their most prestigious events.



Artistic British Championships Liverpool

The team were back volunteering!

With a new stage in place, Michelle was asked to choreograph the ceremony for the Artistic Championships where eyes would be on procedures for the World Championships being held in the same venue in November.  The gymnastics was top quality and the team worked hard ensuring things ran smoothly as always.  Day 2 and Michelle was called to a meeting regarding Worlds..... 

We have been asked to provide the ceremonies team again for the World Championships in November!

Michelle has also been asked to be Ceremonies Manager for the event.

The team were bouncing or the remainder of the weekend and are really excited to be part of such a high profile event.


Ceremonies returned later in 2021 but in a different format to ensure the safety of volunteers and athletes.

Michelle was invited to manage the ceremonies at the Bill McLaughlin championships in Guildford.

Michelle, Emma, April & Rhea also invited to Acrobatic British Championships in Fenton.

Both events had very different ceremonies with the Vips taking medals onto the podium themselves, but it felt so good to be back working with the BG Events team again.

Looking forward to 2022 and the first big event, Artistic British Championships



As we are still under restrictions, BG are unable to hold large events so our Ceremonies team haven't been out to any events this year. 

However, we are keeping everything crossed that we will be asked to volunteer at some of the important events being held in 2022.... watch this space!





Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Ceremonies team have only been able to fulfil one of their events so far this year, at The Pat Wade Acrobatic in Fenton.  The Events Team at BG will keep us up to date as to when our next event will be.


A new recruit to the team

The BG Events Managers, approached us and asked if it would be possible to include boys in our team for ceremonies. We said we had the perfect person back at our gym, Thomas Cannon. Thomas stepped out onto the ceremonies stage at the Adults British Championships at Lilleshall and did an amazing job.  He will be seen in his suit and tie at more events in the future.


Junior Team

As we knew that 2017 was going to be another busy year for our Ceremonies Team, we recruited a Junior team who did a fantastic job..... and still do!



The World Gymnastics Championships,  Glasgow 2015

When I got the call it still didn't seem real.... BG have asked us to be the Ceremonies team at the World Gymnastics Championships in Glasgow!!... was the call I was making to the team.  This still didn't seem real when we were

watching highlights back on TV at Christmas but it was and it was the most emotional, crazy, action packed, energy draining, adrenalin pumping experience the team and myself would ever experience but most of all it was what dreams were made of, a truly memorable experience.

Here is the link to the report by Andrew Simpson, Seniior Sports Editor from The Guardian newspaper, who followed us throughout the event....
