Talented performers in Hartlepool are being urged to come along to auditions for the chance to star in hit TV show The Voice UK 2018.

The team behind the ITV show, which looks for impressive singers from across the country, will be holding auditions in Hartlepool this summer.

Producers of the show hope to discover a range of talent during the auditions, which will take place at The Fisherman’s Arms, in Southgate.

The auditions will be held on Wednesday, May 3, from 7pm, on a first-come first-served basis.

A spokesman for The Voice said: “Next year’s series of The Voice UK is on the look out for anyone who thinks they have what it takes to be the new vocal superstar.”

The Voice UK is open to solos and duos, and all musical styles are welcome.

Already the show has attracted an array of talent from Hartlepool, with singer Rick Snowdon rocketing to national stardom after his appearance on The Voice last year.

Although he didn’t win the competition, he has gone on to star in musical Eugenius! at the London Palladium.

To enter, you will need to be 16 years old on, or before, October 1, 2017.

Those wishing to audition who are under 18 will be permitted if accompanied with parent or legal guardian.
