Auditions are due to take place on Thursday 30th June 2016, setting the stage for the semi-final on Friday 15th July on a big outdoor stage in Gallagher Park on the eve of Northumberland Live Bedliington meets The Big Event 5. The 3 finalists will then share the stage with Johnny Hates Jazz and Modern Romance on Saturday 16th July where one will be crowned NGT winner 2016.
Previous winners of the competition have included singer Chloe Wealleans-Watts and ‘Cat in the Hat’ Lucy Conroy, both who have gone on to star on professional stages. We are delighted that Blyth born Connor Scott, recent winner of BBC Young Dancer of the Year in 2015 also lays claim to winning the NGT title. Lyn Horton, Manager of Leading Link, said: “Northumberland’s Got Talent is in its ninth year, and looking at those that have won the competition, its success speaks for itself.”
Auditions for Northumberland’s Got Talent will take place on a timeslot system on Thursday 30th June between 3.30pm and 6:00pm at The Lodge, which is on the grounds of St Benet Biscop High School in Bedlington, Northumberland - you must book beforehand.

As per last year, there are limited audition spaces available and no individual can appear in more than one act.
“This year The Big Event 5 moves from the traditional Atlee Park to Gallagher Park to partner up with Northumberland Live Bedlington. So this competition is a fantastic opportunity to show off your talents on a massive stage and the final three will be able to battle it out whilst sharing a stage with many well-known stars and a potential audience of 5,000+.”
“Whether you audition and take part, support a friend or family member, or simply come along for a good day under the sun, you cannot afford to miss The Big Event meets Northumberland Live Bedlington this year.”
