Judges from the X Factor television talent show have visited the Market Gates Shopping Centre in Great Yarmouth to see if they could spot some local home grown talent.

Budding singers visited the centre on Saturday in the hope that their talents would be recognized and the audition could be a stepping stone for fame and fortune.

While producers for the show were on the lookout for the next big stars, Access to Music were also in the shopping centre hoping to give someone their big break with a stand and staff on hand to provide information about their courses on offer at Great Yarmouth College.

Gary Roper, from the organisation, said: “With growing job opportunities, there has never been a better time to follow your passion and study for a creative career.”

Access offer Music Performance and Music Technology courses which carry UCAS points for progression to university.
