Coun Martin Thacker MBE, chair of North East Derbyshire District Council, said: “I know we have a great many talented individuals and groups across north Derbyshire so I encourage them to take part in the competition to help raise much needed funds for a charity but also showcase their own amazing abilities.”

A panel will judge the competition, with the winner announced by September 15, 2021.

There will be one winner, who will receive the £250 cash prize, trophy and the chance to perform at a Chesterfield Football Club match day.

Participants will be required to take part in publicity and the closing date for entries is August 31, 2021.

Submitted videos may be used in publicity for the event and the winning entry will be shared with local media and council communication channels.

The contest is open to anyone in north Derbyshire, including Chesterfield, but you must be 18-years-old or over.

If you would like to take part, upload a video of your performance to social media and use the hashtag #NorthDerbyshireTalent or entrants can upload their video to YouTube and send the link to: [email protected]

For acts containing one-three people, the entry fee cost is £5. For acts with four or more people, the cost is £10.

This must be paid for through the chair’s donation page www.easydonate.org/NOIT04
