EVER fancied taking part in Bridgwater Carnival? Well, here's your chance.

Local entertainers are being sought after by Bridgwater Carnival to be 'front of curtain' acts at this year's carnival concerts.

Vocalists, musicians, comedians, magicians, dancers and all round general entertainers are wanted to appear in the popular show, which takes place this year between Monday, September 30 and Saturday, October 12.

The 12 evening performances are expected to attract a sell-out audience and will take place at Bridgwater Town Hall.

Those successful in their applications will help to entertain the audience in between the performances by the 12 Bridgwater carnival clubs and two dance troupes at the carnival concerts.

Auditions will be held at the town hall on Tuesday, May 21.

At last year's concerts, successful front of curtain acts included The Vixens, Simon Newton and Daisy Mae Lee.

Anne Middleton, Secretary and Concerts Coordinator for Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival, said: “We would love to hear from individuals and groups who enjoy performing on a stage and in front of an audience, and who can entertain for a five minute slot at this year’s show.

"So if you think you have what it takes, and would like to play a key part in this year’s carnival concerts, please do get in touch.”

To apply, contact Anne Middleton at enquiries@bridgwatercarnival.org.uk or complete the relevant application form available from Bridgwater Carnival’s official website – www.bridgwatercarnival.org.uk.
