Performers invited to take the spotlight at Rugby's annual talent show

Rugby Editorial 21st Apr, 2023   0

ENTERTAINERS in Rugby are invited to showcase their talents onstage at Rugby’s annual talent contest.

Rugby’s Got Talent 2023 is currently open to entries from local singers, bands, dancers, and entertainers, with the competition’s website now live and this year’s venue, sponsors and prize kitty in place.

This year’s live judged shows will all be at the Benn Hall.

Organised by The Rotary Club of Rugby Dunsmore since 2018, Rugby’s Got Talent has seen packed finals at Rugby Theatre and the Benn Hall in previous years, with winners going on to further their careers in the entertainment industry.

Mike Folly from Rotary said: “We are excited and very proud, as always, to be supporting talent from our town.

“Rotary delivers Rugby’s Got Talent, Rugby Music Festival, and a music bursary scheme, all of which offer opportunities to talented people from the town and surrounding villages.

“Our community is at the core of what we do and Rugby’s Got Talent 2023 is an important part of that.”

A prize fund of £500 is up for grabs, and winners and runners up will also have opportunities to appear at the Rugby Christmas Lights switch on and Rugby Music Festival, and to work with the competition’s media partners BBC Radio CWR.

Show organiser David Head added: “It’s great to be back. Rugby’s Got Talent is going to be better than ever this year with all four shows – three semi-finals and the grand final – at the Benn Hall in front of an experienced judging panel.

“We can’t wait to see who enters. We’ve had a great variety of performers in previous years and expect 2023 to be no different.”

The final of Rugby’s Got Talent is planned for July 20.
