The search is on for Northumberland’s most talented – and this is your chance to show the county that you can be the next North East superstar.
Auditions for Northumberland’s Got Talent will take place on a timeslot based system on Wednesday 13th May between 3:30pm and 6:30pm at The Lodge in Bedlington, Northumberland - you must book beforehand.
The popular Northumberland’s Got Talent competition, which is open to any age, background or ability, is in its eighth year and offers performers from the county the opportunity to shine on a massive stage.
Auditions for Northumberland’s Got Talent are set to take place on the evening Wednesday 13th May, setting the stage for the grand final which will form part of the incredible popular Big Event 4 at Attlee Park in Bedlington on Saturday 20th June.
A new partnership in Northumberland is aiming to bring two generations together.
Local charity Leading Link, working with “Johnnie” Johnson Housing Trust, began a series of inter-generational activities last week with an ‘Easter Extravaganza’ at Bedlington Community Centre.
The event, which was organised and delivered by volunteers from the Youth Ambassadors™ and National Citizen Service (NCS), was designed to introduce young people from the area with some of the tenants that they will be working with from the housing association’s schemes in Blyth, Bedlington, Cramlington and Morpeth.
Young people from Northumberland have been engaging in the arts, as part of a new initiative from Newcastle College.
Local charity Leading Link have been working with The Arts in Partnership to provide a number of exciting and interactive opportunities for Northumberland Children’s University Passport holders and the Youth Ambassadors™, who are a dedicated group of young volunteers that work with the charity.
The Lodge played host to a very successful ‘Evening with your MP’ event yesterday, which offered young people a real insight into the world of local politics.
Leading Link would like to thank Ian Lavery MP for agreeing to the Q&A session and to the young people who attended – they were incredibly attentive and posed a number of well-structured and researched questions, which were answered by Mr Lavery with honesty, humour and integrity.
We would also like to extend our thanks to the staff of St Benet Biscop Catholic Academy for their
support at yesterday’s event and the Bedlington Neighbourhood Policing Team for helping to ensure
that the school-based session ran smoothly.
