Applications are now open for what will be the greatest search for local acts, as Talent Northwest takes to the road.
Six local heats will be taking place in the coming months, and organisers are encouraging you to step forward and represent your community in a competition which will see someone being crowned the winner of Talent Northwest 2015!
With its first stop Strabane on Saturday 21st February, Strabane’s Academy College on the Liskey Road will play host to our first Live auditions showcasing the best the ‘Red Hand county’ has to offer before moving on to heats across Londonderry and Limavady where the best two acts from each area will proceed to represent their community in the grand final which will be televised live from the Millennium Forum on Sunday 29th March 2015.
Organiser, Oliver Green, Greater Shantallow Community Arts said: “The event is FREE to enter and open to everyone, professional or amateur, young or old. If you’ve got talent, we want to showcase it.”
Funded by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure, as part of their North West Social and Economic Development programme, this event has attracted fantastic community support. Organisers have been working in partnership with regional Neighbourhood Renewal Boards and district councils.
They also have Irish TV and Johnston Press on board as official media partners.
