Call for musicians for Burnham-On-Sea Talent Showcase competition

Final spaces are available for local musicians and aspiring singers who want to enter Burnham-On-Sea's third 'Talent Showcase' competition.

The Princess Theatre will host the annual event on Saturday June 10th when musicians will perform in front of a team of judges.

There will be a number of prizes up for grabs, with a chance to sing at local festivals from Farmfest to the Balloon Fiesta and other future events in Burnham-On-Sea.

This year, there's a chance to perform at Burnham-On-Sea's brand new BOSfest. There's also a professional photo shoot on offer for the winner/s.

Steve Parkhouse, one of the judges, is a record producer and is always on the look out for the best new talent. Professional photographer, Laura Zaky, will also be awarding a photoshoot for the winner.

"The Talent Showcase is just another way of reaching out to the community," organiser Lewis Coleman told "It raises the profile of the charity, but also bringing good entertainment to our town with positive outcomes for many of the contestants."

"The majority of the acts in the last couple of years came away with something," added Lewis. "They were recognised for their talents and asked to play at an event or festival."

The contest will once again be judged by people in the industry, festival organisers and a record producer.

The Showcase is held in aid of local charity Somewhere House Somerset. "This event has increased the profile of the charity as well as raising money," Angie Clarke, charity director said, "which has meant more people have been able to access help from us."

"We are looking for singers, duos, guitarists. It's not a battle of the bands, but we have places allocated for bands."

It's £10 to enter and spaces are limited.
