Warwickshire Pride have announced that their annual talent contest will return next month. Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent has taken place each year since 2014 and organisers say this year’s will be the biggest and best to date.

The event is set to take place on Friday 30 June at the Episode Hotel and once again Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent will be searching for a superstar to grace the main stage at this year’s Warwickshire Pride festival.

Judges of this year’s Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent include legendary drag queen Sassi Afrika and C4Z, frontwoman of local band Lost in the Wreckage. Once the judges have provided feedback, it’s the audience who get to vote for the winner.

The champion of Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent will receive a headline slot on the main stage at the Warwickshire Pride festival in August, plus an interview with The Gay UK magazine. Two runners up will also get to perform at the festival.

Alongside the contestants, several guest performers will also take to the stage. They include the first ever winner of Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent, Cristian Honeychurch, and an exclusive performance from Sassi Afrika.

Warwickshire Pride’s Chair of Trustees, Daniel Browne, said: "Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent is back, bigger and better than ever before. Contestant applications are now open and we welcome any type of performer. Whatever your talent, ability or experience, we want to hear from you.

"Tickets are also now on sale, with proceeds going towards putting on this summer’s Warwickshire Pride festival. We’re grateful to the Episode Hotel for hosting the contest for us and putting on some delicious food for the audience too. This year’s contest promises to be a fantastic night out, and we’re looking forward to seeing some great talent on stage."

Warwickshire Pride’s Got Talent takes place on Friday 30 June at Episode Hotel, Upper Holly Walk, Leamington Spa. Tickets and contestant applications are available at www.warwickshirepride.co.uk/prides-got-talent.

Warwickshire Pride is taking place at the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington on Saturday 19 August, with Mister V Street Food and the Equality & Inclusion Partnership recently announced as sponsors. See www.warwickshirepride.co.uk for full details.
