The application process is now open, and we’re encouraging people of all ages and talents to get involved in the Brighouse Echo presents Brighouse Has Talent.
To apply, simply email your name, age, contact number and a brief description of your act to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for receipt of applications is noon on Thursday, October 30.
Audition days will then be held at Bailiff Bridge Community Centre, Victoria Road, on November 6 and 13.
Each contestant will be given a time slot to perform their routine (maximum of five minutes) in front of our cameras.
All of the performers will be photographed and their routines will be filmed.
The videos will be uploaded to our website, www.brighouseecho.co.uk, and the photographs will be published in the paper.
We will then open the public vote and invite people to watch all the videos and pick their favourites.
Once the votes have been counted, the top ten will go forward to the final at Brighouse Civic Hall on Monday, December 1, the grand finale to the Victorian Christmas Weekend organised by Brighouse Business Initiative.
Each act will perform on stage in front of a live audience and a panel of judges who will choose the winner and crown the Brighouse Has Talent champion.
