Auditions time in The W Factor

Evesham Editorial 4th Dec, 2018   0

YOUNG people from Evesham and Pershore will get to showcase their talent when The W Factor returns in the coming weeks.

Open auditions for the contest will take place at The De Montfort School from 5.30pm on Wednesday, January 16 and at the same time the following day (January 17) at the Civic Centre in Pershore.

The W Factor is open to performers and artists aged between 11 and 18 who live in Wychavon district.

There are a number of categories, including dance, drama, music, singing, DJ and music production and comedy.




The selected finalists will get to perform at the Number 8 Arts Centre in Pershore in a professional showcase final with industry standard production facilities on March 18.

The final in 2018 saw 16 young people from across Wychavon compete in front of family and friends for the accolade of being crowned a winner in one of the five categories.


The winners will also get training from professional artists to help them develop and they will be able to perform at local events throughout the summer of 2019.

Tracy Grubb, Wychavon District Council’s Community Development Officer, said: “It’s a privilege to bring back The W Factor again to Wychavon.

“Over the years the competition has been brilliant for developing young artists, but it’s also been great at helping those taking part to develop their confidence and build a strong personality, which will hopefully help them as they pursue their careers. We welcome children with any abilities and additional needs to take part.”

Anyone wanting to go along to an audtion is asked to fill in the form www.wychavon.gov.uk/events-training-and-workshops along with a photo consent form.
