Lights, camera, action - the search is on to find Brighouse’s next star.

The first entries have been coming in for Brighouse Has Talent, a new competition run by our sister paper the Brighouse Echo, and there is still time for you to get involved.

Brighouse Has Talent aims to shine a spotlight on the vast array of talented people in the Brighouse area.

Sponsored by Lattitude7, Bricks4Kidz and Sleigh & Story, and supported by Brighouse Business Initiative, Brighouse Has Talent is open to people of all ages and talents who live, work or go to school in the Brighouse area.

Audition days will be held at Bailiff Bridge Community Centre, Victoria Road, on November 6 and 13.

Each of the performers will be filmed performing their routines and the videos posted on the Echo website - www.brighouseecho.co.uk.

The top ten acts, as voted for by readers, will go through to the grand final at Brighouse Civic Hall on December 1, where they will perform in front of a live audience and a panel of judges.

The winner will be crowned the Brighouse Has Talent champion and receive a trophy and a cash prize.

To apply, email your name, age, contact number and a brief description of your act to dominic.brown@jpress.co.uk before noon on Thursday, October 30.
