Gloucestershire's Got Talent open to applications

Got a talent the county would love to see? Win £1,000 and a one-year promotional contract, during the first ever Gloucestershire’s Got Talent competition.

Forget X Factor, Pop Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, as Gloucestershire’s very own talent show has been launched and as is on the lookout for applicants of all ages, no matter what your special skill.

Gloucestershire’s Got Talent has been organised to find fantastic local talent of all types in the county, and the winner will receive a fantastic prize in the form of £1,000 and a one-year promotional contact – giving them their first step onto the ladder of potential future stardom in Gloucestershire and beyond.

Whether you have a set of lungs to give Matt Cardle or Jai McDowall a run for their money, can work the dancefloor better than Stavros Flatley or Steven Hall, or have an unusual talent you think should be unleashed upon the world, now’s your chance to reach for the stars as part of the inaugural Gloucestershire’s Got Talent competition. What’s more, it’s open to individuals and groups.

Anyone interested in applying can do so via the online form available at by Saturday 12 November 2011, and organisers will be in touch with an audition date. Plus, from the semi-final stage of the competition onwards, The University of Gloucestershire’s media department will be recording auditions and providing wardrobe and styling assistance to all performers.

The competition will culminate in an anticipated final show on Saturday 17 December 2011 at The Picturedrome Theatre in Gloucester – including celebrity judges Bradley McIntosh from S Club, as well as Gloucester Rugby wingman Lesley Vainikolo – and even if you’re not competing, members of the public will be casting their votes on the acts as part of the show’s audience.

Gloucestershire’s Got Talent 2011 will be supporting local charity The Pied Piper Appeal, launched in 1992 to improve the lives of sick children in Gloucestershire.

For full information, to apply and book tickets visit directly, and don’t miss the chance to be the first ever Gloucestershire’s Got Talent winner.
