Talented High Peak residents are being invited to get their entries in now for the 2013 Has Dove Got Talent show.
Last year’s show was bigger and better than ever before and preparations are well underway for this year’s event, which takes place on Saturday April 27 at Dove Holes Community Centre.
The show will be split into two halves, with the juniors (aged up to 15) in the first half of the evening and the seniors (16+) showcasing their talents in the second part of the night.
This year’s judges are Billerettes founder and charity fundraiser Bill Weston MBE, Buxton’s X Factor contestant Curtis Golden and Leighton Morris of High Peak Radio. Curtis will also perform on the evening.
Money raised from the talent show will be split between Dove Holes Carnival and the charity Journey of a Lifetime Trust (JOLT), which has been making a positive difference to the lives of disabled, ill, abused and neglected young people since 1983. The charity was chosen by Dove Holes Carnival King Stuart Marchington.
Anyone with a talent is now being invited to get involved by contacting the organisers online at www.dovecarnival.org.uk, or texting or phoning Sally on 07710 552 827.
The show starts at 7pm prompt, finishing at around 11pm and all contestants need to be at the community centre for 5.30pm.
This year’s main sponsor for the event is the Wheatsheaf pub in Dove Holes, which is donating £100 for the adult winner and £50 for the junior winner. Some other prizes are yet to be confirmed but include recording sessions, singing lessons, make overs, day out vouchers and more.
Tickets for the talent show cost £3 and are available from Sally on 07710 552 827. Entry for contestants is free.
