One of the country’s leading television series has turned to Lowestoft in its hunt for the nation’s most talented individuals.

Britain’s Got Talent, which is due to return to our screens next year, is hoping to discover talent in England’s most easterly point.

Auditions for the show, which has discovered an array of performers including Pudsey the Dog, Susan Boyle and Diversity in the past, are to be held at Claremont Pier in Lowestoft later this month.

On top of this they are also heading to Caister this month.

On Wednesday, August 30 talent scouts will be at Eastern Beach Caravan Park for the evening from 8pm to midnight.

Those wishing to take part in the ITV competition can audition to do so between 12pm and 4pm on Sunday, August 27.

The competition is open to anybody who has a talent to showcase, although contestants under 16 must be accompanied by either a parent or a guardian.

Alternatively, those wishing to take part in the televised competition that are unable to make these particular auditions can apply online.
