Musicians wanted for Saffron Walden’s Got Talent 2012

TALENTED musicians are being urged to enter Saffron Walden’s Got Talent 2012.

The first SWGT in 2010 was hailed a “tremendous success” by organisers, Saffron Walden Arts Trust, with celebrity judges offering encouragement and advice to acts of all ages. The winner then was singer-songwriter, Hollie Haines, from Radwinter, and a surprise gig was offered to 11-year old Cassie Dearing, who was given the chance to perform in front of 2,000 people at the Little Easton Manor Champagne Picnic.

A spokesman for Saffron Walden Arts Trust said: “W’ re really excited about staging this show.

“The first Saffron Walden’s Got Talent proved a tremendous success and is a great opportunity for people to show what a wealth of talent we have in this area.”

All ages are welcome to enter and there is �200 up for grabs for the winner.

Application forms are available from the Tourist Information Centre. Deadline for applications is May 18.

The competition makes up part of the Saffron Walden Arts Festival which is running for the third time, over the weekend of June 9 and 10.
