Spectators are permitted and may enter FREE of charge.

We encourage spectators and it is often good to come watch first to understand how a competition operates. You will then know what to do when you do compete. There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved as a volunteer. If you would a judging tutorial please approach a Delegate, they will be wearing the bright red polo shirts.

Spectators are encouraged to learn how to judge. We will run a judging tutorial at the same time as the new competitor tutorial, you can also have someone teach you how to judge later in the day. Judging is not difficult and you don't need to be a cuber to be a successful judge, it is an excellent way to make the time fly by!

No tickets are required for spectators but we ask you to avoid the busy morning period.
