Worksop’s Got Talent is returning on Friday 26th November with their biggest show yet, in front of 700 local people and a celebrity judging panel made up of S Club 7 legend Jo O’Meara and others.

Organisers have chosen their 12 finalists for the 2021 final, which include a range of singers, a dance troupe, the first ever breakdancing duo and a ukulele-playing comedic local man. The fifth anniversary Christmas special will also feature three special guest performers from some very exciting guests, including a certain pop star…

James Clarke, the event’s organiser, said: “This is our strongest line-up ever – I can’t wait for everyone to see who’s taking part! I can’t even guess who’s going to win! Plus, the celebrity guests are incredible. The price of £10.00 a ticket – with all of the money going to charity, for a three-and-a-half hour amazing Christmas show – is a bargain!”

Since 2016, Worksop’s Got Talent has raised £40,000 for blindness charity Retina UK, sold out four times (700 guests every year), won four awards, earned the event organiser invitations to Buckingham Palace and the House of Commons and become Worksop’s biggest event. Further announcements on celebrity judges and hosts will follow in due course. Follow Worksop’s Got Talent on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the latest updates. To buy your tickets (£10.00), either text James on 07590 264008 or call / visit North Notts Arena.

Multi award-winning, chart-topping singer, songwriter and actress Jo O’Meara was announced as the first celebrity judge for Worksop’s Got Talent 2021.

The band released 13 singles and seven albums in their five years together, along with starring on a hugely successful TV series that was watched by 90 million people worldwide. Jo has just released her brand new solo album, ‘With Love’, in August 2021 which has become a commercial and critical hit.

She said: “I am so excited to be a judge on this amazing show and it’s all for such a great cause too! I look forward to seeing some amazing talent! I will see you all very soon…”

Leading UK male model, Sam Reece, has been announced as the second celebrity judge.
