Chesterfield begins search for a star


For the third year running the Mayor of Chesterfield will be hosting Chesterfield’s Got Talent.

This year the Mayor is once again looking for talented acts from across the Borough.

The event is being held at the Winding Wheel on the Saturday 8th October and you have up to the 23rd September to put in your application.

Chelsea Redfern was the first winner of Chesterfield’s Got Talent back in 2009 after judges said you could win a place on X Factor. Chelsea was still at Netherthorpe School at the time.

During that year she performed at various venues for the Mayor. Firstly was the Mayor’s Gala Ball at the Town Hall, followed by Gala in the Park at Queen’s Park where Chelsea performed in front of thousands with four of her school friends.

Chelsea’s final performance before the new winner was crowned was at St Thomas’s Church. She said this was her favourite performance as she was honoured to share the stage with Stephen Baird and the Abertillery Male Welsh Voice Choir.

Chelsea’s last challenge was to judge the competition in 2010. Since winning in 2009 Chelsea has spent the last year at college in Nottingham where she studies dance, drama and vocals. She also competed in Academy Idol in Barnsley and won first place.

The council hopes to see Chelsea at this year’s event if other commitments do not prevent an appearance.
