This weekend more than 100 people will be queuing up outside Churchill Square ready to sing their hearts out for a chance to appear on The X Factor. On Sunday April 24th the Mobile Audition Tour is coming to the shopping centre as part of its whistle stop tour of over 40 towns and cities across the UK.
The Mobile Auditions are open to groups and individuals aged 16 or over and will be held from 11am to 5pm. The auditions are on a first-come-first-served basis so if you do want to audition, it’s best to get there early. Should the hopeful be successful they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges in the summer, when the judges’ auditions take place. The Director of Churchill Square Mark Buchanan-Smith said “we’ve had a fantastic response since we announced the auditions were being staged here again. More than 100 people have already declared that they’re attending, with the incredibly talented young bands and singers in the town we’re expecting to break last year’s total of 120 auditionees. X Factor represents a fantastic opportunity for people to show off their talent and everyone at the centre is looking forward to seeing if the next star of tomorrow comes from the area. In 2012, series winner James Arthur had tried out at a mobile audition so it really is a huge opportunity for budding artists and we’re proud and excited to be a part of it.”
Good luck to anyone auditioning!
