Fylde’s Got Talent
FYLDES GOT TALENT IS BACK
The annual Fylde’s Got Talent competition is upon us and performers from the FYLDE BOROUGH area only are being sought to showcase their talents.
The lucky winner’s will perform on the same stage as the headline act for the Sunday night of The Lytham Proms Festival Weekend 2013.
The competition, now in its fifth year is proving to be a real hit with the locals, and Cuffe & Taylor are hoping that next year will be no exception.
So far previous winners have performed alongside international artists Boyzone in 2011, and Family favourite Olly Murs in 2012.
A spokesperson for Cuffe & Taylor said “We are really proud of how successful this local event has become, it has almost taken on an identity of its own. We are constantly being approached by local talent who wish to enter the competition, as they all want the opportunity to play on a world class stage, alongside their idols. We are close to announcing the artist for the Sunday night, but as yet it is a closely guarded secret. Needless to say the winner will not be disappointed.”
The competition is looking for all types of performers – singers, dancers, musicians, magicians and comedians – all encouraged to take part whether soloists, duos, bands or groups.
So if you think you have what it takes then visit www.lythamproms.co.uk to apply.
Auditions will take place at Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish Centre, St Annes on Saturday 9th March starting at 10:00 (audition time slots will only be given to those who apply online beforehand).
Space will be restricted so participants are encouraged to stick to their audition slot times.
The Grand Final will be held at Lowther Pavilion, Lytham, on Sunday 21st April 2013, tickets priced at £10.00 plus booking fee.
All money raised from the competition will be donated to the RNLI, which is a charity that saves lives at sea.
They provide, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service and a seasonal lifeguard service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboats in 2001, its lifeguards have saved more than 140,000 lives.
In order that we raise as much money as we possibly can, we have introduced a small entry fee of £2.50 – per act, this is payable on the door at the auditions.
