Barclays Live in Bristol

Five dance performances at Broadmead in Bristol had the judges tapping their toes on Saturday 14 August as part of the Barclays Live dance competition to launch the new branch at 53/55 Broadmead– and these performers are now shimmying through to the next round.






All are finalists in the Barclays Live competition – and vying for the chance to win a pair of VIP tickets to see Brendan Cole in action as well as dancing all the way to the bank with a cheque for £1,000!

The finalists were chosen by a panel of judges including Strictly Come Dancing’s Brendan Cole, Key 103 Breakfast Show presenter Trevor Jordan and Brett Sutor from Barclays.

Videos of the five finalists have been uploaded onto the Barclays Live website http://www.barclayslive.co.uk/ and they now face a public vote to decide on the winner. Cast your votes now! And check out Your Name in Dance, the new interactive dance tool which allows you to produce a bespoke dance for your name.

Barclays Live teamed up with award winning street dancer BROOKE to develop the online tool which you can share with your friends via Facebook and Twitter, or can copy the link and send it by email.

Barclays Live marks the launch of the brand new Bristol branch which is packed full of ideas developed to make banking faster, easier and more enjoyable – including a spacious new premier lounge.

Brendan Cole, 33, is a champion ballroom dancer, specialising in Latin American dancing. He is one of only a handful of professional dancers to compete in all seven series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing as well as judging four series of Dancing With The Stars in his native New Zealand. Earlier this year, Brendan enjoyed great success and critical acclaim during his first nationwide solo tour, Live and Unjudged.

Brendan Cole says “Bristol has talent! We saw some really fantastic performances in Bristol from streetdance troupes to jivers- the high standard of the performances made it difficult to select our final five. After deliberations we have chosen, Hype Juniors, The Freestylers, Crusaders, Cobera and Charlie Chuck. These dancers are now counting on you to vote for them on the Barclays Live website– so make sure you log on and do your bit!”

Jo Hawkins, Broadmead Manager, says: “We’re thrilled that Barclays has chosen to invest in Broadmead, offering shoppers premier banking facilities at its brand new branch. Saturday’s event was a great opportunity to celebrate local talent and Broadmead was proud to welcome dancing star Brendan Cole to enjoy such fabulous performances in the heart of Bristol.”
