Talent show plan for town

Budding performers will get their moment in the spotlight after plans for a new ‘Ripley’s Got Talent’ competition were announced.

PJ’s snooker hall on Booth Street, Ripley, are calling for the town’s best singers, dancers, magicians, comedians and more to take part in the contest, based on the ITV hit show, Britain’s Got Talent.

The winner will have the limelight all to themselves for a night as the first place entrant will get a gig at the club for an evening.

Entertainments manager at PJ’s, Justin Neville, said: “It will follow the format of Britain’s Got Talent, so contestants will face a judging panel, there will be a number of heats and then a grand finale.

“Just like the show itself anyone with any act can enter.”

For an application form drop into the club on Booth Street or alternatively call Steve Quinn on 07977254252 for information. A date for heats to begin is still to be decided.
