ENTERTAINERS are eagerly lining up to enter the biggest and best talent competition in the Fylde.

Plans to stage Fylde’s Got Talent 2011 are now well under way.

Last year’s event, won by Kirkham Grammar School student Chloe Walker, was a huge success.

Now in its third year, organisers are hoping the contest will be bigger and better than ever this time around.

They are looking for all manner of performers – with singers, dancers, musicians, magicians and comedians all encouraged to take part. All types of acts are welcome – including soloists, duos, bands and groups.

Already, there has been a lot of interest, with many hopefuls and wannabes signing up to take part.

So, if you think you’ve got what it takes – don’t miss your chance to audition.

Auditions take place between 10am and 2pm at Kirkham Community Centre on Sunday March 6, and at Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish Centre, St Annes, on Saturday March 12.

Should you be successful you will be called back to the Our Lady Parish Centre on Sunday March 13.

The Grand Final is at Lowther Pavilion, Lytham, on Saturday March 20.

Since winning the contest last year, Chloe’s singing career has gone from strength to strength – performing at Fleetwood’s Marine Hall and Lytham’s Christmas lights switch on. And she sang at the prestigious Lytham Proms concert, which was headlined by soprano Lesley Garrett and watched by 5,000 people.

Progress Housing will be the main sponsor of this year’s Fylde’s Got Talent – providing the £500 prize money.

West Coast Sound and Lighting are also sponsoring the event for the third year.

But organisers are still looking for local business to offer prizes for the banner competition and raffle, in aid of Snowdrop Bereavement Centre. And there are spaces left to advertise in the programme – if you are interested contact Kelly Stott on 07879559436 or visit fyldesgottalent@yahoo.co.uk.
