“The Britain`s Got Talent production team will be visiting Gloucester on Saturday looking for a range of fresh talent for the hit ITV show.
Producers will be in Kings Square from 2pm to check out the street dance moves on display at Show and Prove – part of the cultural programme of events presented by Marketing Gloucester.
The free unticketed event, taking place between 2pm and 6pm in King`s Square, is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy hip-hop dance in its rawest form with talented breakers out to impress a panel of judges including Hakim Saber from London’s Rain Crew.
Marketing Gloucester chief executive Jason Smith said: “The Show and Prove event was always going to be something special thanks to the undoubted talent and competitiveness of everyone taking part.
“But now there is the added ingredient of the Britain`s Got Talent production team being in the audience too and that could push the standard to even greater heights.”
Anyone can enter Show and Prove, hosted by Tony Adigun from Avant Garde Dance, but they must be registered from 1.30pm on the day. It is free to take part.
Lise Noakes, Gloucester City Council`s cabinet member for culture and leisure, said: “This is another excellent example of the cultural activities that have been put on by Marketing Gloucester supported by Arts Council England which demonstrate our aspirations to put culture at the heart of the city for all.”
Gloucester City Council leader, Paul James, added “The cultural programme offers something for everyone to enjoy and it`s great to see such a wide range of events being so well attended.
“I`m sure Show and Prove will prove popular too and it`s a fantastic chance for those taking part to showcase their talents to an even wider audience.”
Show and Prove is among three free events being held in Gloucester on Saturday as part of the cultural programme supporting the rugby celebrations and presented by Marketing Gloucester.
No tickets are required for the Rugby Flashmob which starts at 1.15pm in the Fanzone. A limited number will be available on a first-come-first-served basis on the night for Ensemble Rustavi at Gloucester Cathedral, which starts at 6pm.
