The deadline for our talent contest is approaching fast

SHORT STORY: The eternal battle between sisters

Have your say

TIME is running out to enter our Instant Star competition.

Once more, we’re looking for the best new local talent to win the chance to perform in the Children in Need gala show at the Kings Theatre in Southsea on November 9, the switching on of the city centre Christmas lights and The Guide and We Can Do It awards shows.

Entrants can be of any age and we’ll consider any kind of variety act – singing, dancing, magic, comedy or anything else – but it has to be suitable for a family audience.

To register for Instant Star, e-mail with your name, address, age and contact numbers plus description of your act.

Put INSTANT STAR in the subject field.

Auditions take place at The Cellars in Eastney on Wednesday, October 8.

Please arrive from 6pm for soundchecks, with auditions from 7pm.

All entrants must register in advance. Closing date for entries is midnight on Thursday, October 2.
