Durham’s Got Talent

Have your say

TALENTED teenagers are needed.

Durham’s Got Talent is a new competition for 11 to 19-year-olds and launches on April 1.

Young people who live or go to school in the county can send in a video audition, which will be judged and narrowed down to 20 semi-finalists.

Online voting will take place via www.getoutthere.info between May 7 and 31 to find the final 10.

They will be invited to a live final at the Gala Theatre to perform in front of a 500-strong audience on July 8.

Durham Area Action Partnership is funding the event, with support from the Durham Positive Activities for Young People team.
