Worksop’s Got Talent

by | 21 June 2024 | Community Event, Retford

Multi award-winning charity talent show, Worksop’s Got Talent, is returning for an eighth year on Friday 8th November at North Notts Arena, with auditions taking place later this summer.

Organisers are looking for the best, varied talent that Worksop has to offer, ranging from singers to dancers to comedians and magicians – and anything else that they haven’t seen before! The lucky 12 finalists will then perform in front of 700 local people and an all-star celebrity judging panel in November.

There are no age restrictions to take part and wannabe finalists should email worksopsgottalent@outlook.com with their full name, age, talent and contact number. Previous contestants have gone on to perform at high-profile corporate gigs, go viral online with millions of views and even appear on several TV programmes, including The Voice UK.

Since 2016, Worksop’s Got Talent has raised a staggering £140,000 for national sight loss charity, Retina UK, as well as winning eight awards, selling out seven times (with 700 guests each year) and earning the event organiser invitations to Buckingham Palace, Downing Street and the House of Commons. Celebrity judges take to their seats year after year and this year’s line-up is set to be the best one yet, with further announcements to follow.

Previous celebrity judges have included Grammy-winning songwriter Eliot Kennedy, Coronation Street stars Kym Marsh and James Burrows, Emmerdale actor Dean Andrews, S Club 7 legend Jo O’Meara, Sheffield Wednesday footballer Liam Palmer, various Love Island stars and many more.

Celebrities make virtual appearances too, with Boris Johnson, Piers Morgan and James Corden amongst the biggest names to appear during the final. Who will be making an appearance this year?

James Clarke, event organiser, says: “Worksop’s Got Talent continues to grow each year and I’m so excited to be bringing the show back for an incredible eighth year! If you want to showcase your talent in front of your hometown, whilst supporting a fantastic charity, then please get in touch!
