The contest, first launched in 2009, gives musicians, comedians and other artists the opportunity to showcase their skills to the public before the finalists battle it out at a live event.

A spokesman said: “The aim of Ipswich Has Got Talent is to bring community members together and celebrate Ipswich as a safe place to live work and visit.

“Ipswich Best Bar None venues are again invited to host the heats throughout the spring.”

Last year a clutch of singers, dancers and even a 46-strong choir took to the stage of the Regent to battle it out for first place.

The winner was 19-year-old Leah Godbold, whose rendition of With You from Ghost: The Musical wowed the judges.

The launch of this year’s competition will be on Saturday and there will be full details in Monday’s Ipswich Star.
