WYZ Members – Win the chance to meet Britain’s Got Talent judges and tickets to the BGT Final

Are you a WYZ member with a hidden talent? Are you the next great singer of Wigan or play a mean bit of guitar? We want to see you! Wigan Youth Zone members have got a great opportunity this Autumn to show off their fantastic talents and win the opportunity to meet Simon Cowell & the Britain’s Got Talent judges plus four free tickets to watch the final.

This month we are launching our Wigan Youth Zone’s Got Talent Competition – where Wigan Youth Zone members compete through various stages of heats to win the grand prize of a meet and greet with Simon Cowell at BGT auditions on Sunday 5th November in Manchester AND 4 tickets to the BGT Final.

The first auditions are right around the corner on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st November. Any member is welcome to come down to the open auditions on either of these days, held here at The Venue (part of Wigan Youth Zone).

How to get involved

Come along to the Open Auditions on Sat 30th September or Sunday 1st November and you can perform in front of our panel of friendly WYZ staff.

Registration is between 10am and 11am on both days at The Venue (next door to WYZ), anyone wishing to perform must attend registration and collect a timeslot for their audition later in the day (auditions will then run from 11am – 3pm) and come back ready at their allotted time.
