Award-winning charity talent show, Worksop’s Got Talent, is returning for a sixth year on Friday 11th November at North Notts Arena, and auditions are taking place this summer at Worksop Town FC.

Organisers are looking for the best varied talent that Worksop has to offer, ranging from singers to dancers and comedians to magicians. This year’s show will see six of the best all-time contestants compete alongside six brand new talented contestants, which is set to make for one incredible final.

There are no age restrictions and wannabe finalists should email with their full name, age, talent and contact number; they will then be invited to an audition later this summer. Previous contestants have gone on to perform at high-profile corporate gigs, go viral online and even appear on several TV programmes, including The Voice UK.
Since 2016, Worksop’s Got Talent has raised a staggering £85,000 for blindness charity, Retina UK, as well as winning four awards, selling out five times (with 700 guests each year) and earning the event organiser invitations to Buckingham Palace 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 announcements to follow. Previous judges have included Grammy-winning songwriter Eliot Kennedy, Coronation Street stars Kym Marsh and James Burrows, S Club 7 legend Jo O’Meara, Sheffield Wednesday footballer Liam Palmer, Love Island stars and many more.
Last year’s final saw James Corden appear via video from the set of his Los Angeles chat show, plus appearances from Holly Willoughby, Philip Schofield, Rylan Clark, Chesney Hawkes, Chris Kamara and more – so lots of surprises are guaranteed for this year’s show! Being on 11th November, there will also be a Remembrance Day tribute.

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