Britain’s Got Talent blow for Steel City

Have your say

Organisers have scrapped this week’s regional auditions for Britain’s Got Talent.

The auditions were due to be held on Tuesday, November 6, at Sheffield City Hall.

A spokesperson from Britain’s Got Talent has commented: “We cannot hold the auditions in Sheffield as the show’s set cannot fit into the venue.

“We are very disappointed not to be visiting Sheffield but we’re holding open auditions in Manchester that we hope people from the area will attend.”

After visiting the venue a few times over the past months, the production company decided last week that auditions will no longer be coming to Sheffield due to the restrictions of the size of Britain’s Got Talent stage set which wouldn’t be suitable for the Irwin Mitchell Oval Hall.
