One of the nation’s favourite talent shows is on the lookout for fresh talent – and Boltoners have the chance to partake.

Britain's Got Talent is holding open auditions in Manchester where the public are invited to present their unique and spectacular talents in person.

The show is open to any performer of any age, with any talent - all they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress.

They are inviting any talent from magicians to comedians, drag acts to singers and acrobats to animals.

Successful acts could be in with the chance of performing in front of the judges – and be crowned the 2024 Britain’s Got Talent champion – walking away with a spot in the Royal Variety Performance and a £250,000 cash prize.

Open auditions will take place at Manchester Central Convention Complex on Saturday and Sunday, October 28 and 29 from 10am to 5pm.

Britain’s Got Talent has delivered some of the most talked about performances and most memorable TV moments of the last decade and more, including Diversity, Calum Scott, Lost Voice Guy and superstar singer Susan Boyle.

Bolton-born clarinet player Mark Holt previously took to the BGT stage giving the judges a laugh with his rendition of the Lion King’s Hakuna Matata.

But can you follow in their footsteps?

Aspiring acts can apply now via to register for one of the audition days or simply turn up on the day.
