Britain's Got Talent is heading to Birmingham

The nation’s favourite talent show, Britain’s Got Talent is back on the road once again scouring the length and breadth of the country with its biggest-ever open audition tour visiting a total of eleven cities across the UK and Ireland.

The show will be heading to Birmingham on Sun 26th, Mon 27th and Tues 28th October to uncover some of the best talent around, looking for wonderful, weird and astounding acts for next year’s series. Aspiring stars can attend auditions between 11.00am – 6.00pm at The International Convention Centre, Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2EA.

This year’s winners musical theatre boy band Collabro, who were crowned in front of an audience of 13million viewers at home, have gone on to amazing success having secured a No.1 hit with their debut album Stars. The band will also be touring next year alongside fellow 2014 finalist Lucy Kay, who is set to release her debut album Fantasia this month.

Other success stories from this series include musical duo Bars & Melody whose single, Hopeful reached number 5 in the chart in July, and swing band Jack Pack, who have recently signed a deal to release their debut album in 2015.

Anyone looking to emulate the success of previous finalists should take a chance and apply now for the open auditions which are taking place between October – December this year ahead of the judges audition tour in 2015. The open auditions will be visiting more cities than ever before with 11 locations across the UK and Ireland (full details below).

The show is open to any performer of any age, from any background, with any talent - all they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress. Anything goes from comedians to contortionists, dancers to drag acts and acrobats to animals. Aspiring stars can apply via www.itv.com/talent

Executive Producer, Amelia Brown, said

“Britain’s Got Talent has an amazing record of celebrating fantastic talent and changing people’s lives – from Susan Boyle and Diversity through to Paul Potts, Ashleigh and Pudsey and this year’s winners Collabro. They all took a chance and applied for the show and that’s what we want the people to do this year. We can’t wait to see the talent that Birmingham has to offer.”

To date Susan Boyle has sold over 23 million records worldwide, Diversity have had five sell-out nationwide tours, Paul Potts, who has sold 27 platinum records worldwide and Ashleigh and Pudsey stared in their own movie earlier this year.

Britain’s Got Talent is Thames/Syco production for ITV. The show returns to ITV in 2015.
