Auditions announced for Spotlight On Youth!

If you're 19 or under and want a chance to appear at the Floral Pavilion along with the brightest and best young performers in the region, make a date to audition for this year's Spotlight On Youth.

We're appealing to singers, comedians, poets, dancers, bands – anyone with a talent in the performing arts  and are aged 19 or under – to come forward.

The show, which has been staged every year for more than 30 years, takes place at the Floral Pavilion, New Brighton, on April 22nd 2018, but open auditions have just been announced for Saturday 17th February 2018

The shows are always a sell-out and raise money for the Mayor of Wirral’s Special Charity Fund.

Announcing the auditions, Mayor of Wirral, Cllr. Ann McLachlan, said: ‘This annual event has showcased the talents of many local youngsters while raising thousands of pounds for the Mayor of Wirral’s Special Charity Fund, which supports local charities. This year I will be trying to raise as much money as I can for my two nominated charities which are, IncuBabies and Merseyside Autistic Children’s Society (MACS).

‘We are looking for young musicians, singers, dancers, comedians, sketch-performers, bands and more, as wide a variety of entertainment acts as possible. Last year’s sell out show raised over £3,000 from this one night event, so you will not only be taking part in a very enjoyable event, you will be raising money for charity.’
