Coventry’s got talent 2010

7 Dec

Calling all budding singers, dancers and variety acts, the popular spin off of everyone’s favourite TV show Britain’s got Talent, has come to Coventry giving local stars a chance to shine. Coventry’s Got Talent 2010 is back, with auditions being held at the Coventry Transport Museum on the 21st of November from 12-4pm. Just in time for the star studded finale on the 8th December.

Three local specialists from Coventry and Warwickshire in performing arts and music will be judging, choosing the lucky winner of the £100 cash prize and the priceless opportunity of appearing, and performing at next year’s Touch FM music event. Auditions slots are open for ages 10 years and above, giving everyone an opportunity to show off their skills, and must be booked in advance by phoning 02476234270.

“Coventry’s Got Talent has evolved from the Christmas factor” Clive Skelhon head of PR and Marketing at the Transport Museum commented “last year we has people coming off the streets wanting to audition, they didn’t really put any real effort into it or took it that seriously, so we thought we should develop it into something which a lot of people would like to take part in. There are a lot of talented people in Coventry and it’s time to give them an opportunity to show what they can do.”

Brody Swain from Touch FM will be hosting and introducing finalists for this much anticipated event that has already received much interest from the public. Coventry’s Got Talent has even sparked international interest, with a male yodeller travelling all the way from Romania to take part in the competition, for his chance to win.

“Almost all of our audition slots have been practically filled, people are looking for an opportunity to appear in front of the public and perform and that’s what we want to give them.” Clive added “the museum has always been a tourist attraction. And to most local people a kind of community centre which they regularly visit; it’s great that we have a new way of getting new people in here, and introducing them to the city, and what it has to offer.”

The final on the 8th is open to the general public; all are welcome to come along watch and cheer for their favourite act and be part of the audience.
