A chance to share the stage with pop superstars JLS

DANCE GROUPS from across Staffordshire are being invited to share the bill with pop superstars JLS at the Britannia Stadium Big Event.

JLS will provide the headline entertainment at the fun-packed family day on Sunday 2nd June, while stars from the world of TV soaps will go head-to-head with Stoke City Legends in a celebrity match.

But there’s so much more to the Big Event, which is being sponsored by Q-railing and Listers, including a dance competition with four cash prizes up for grabs.

The winners of the first prize will carry off £250, while second, third and fourth will win £150, £100 and £50 respectively.

Entries are now being taken for the competition and further details are available by contacting the Club’s Events Manager Della Birchall on 01782 592212 or by emailing

The appearance of JLS, who have announced they will be splitting up at the end of the year after five years of phenomenal success, will round off a fantastic afternoon of entertainment.

The Club have already announced some big names from the world of football and television who will be appearing in the game itself in mid-afternoon, while fund-raising on the day will include a bucket collection for the Stoke City Community Trust and the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.
