Organiser Oliver Cruickshank from Community Connections said: “We are delighted that so many people have come forward but we know there is a lot more talent out there. We need comedians, magicians, dancers, singers, jugglers, choirs, musicians, and ventriloquists to enter the contest. We would like people to come along to the Kings Centre for their chance to enter our X-Factor style talent show audition.”
Entry costs are �1, and participants could win a cash prize of up to �125. The finals will be held at the Inspire-Aspire event taking place in March.
