The auditions will be held in Copas Bar, Sea Road from 7pm to 11pm on Wednesday, October 17, hot on the heels of the weekend visit to Ipswich by the show’s scouts.

Singers, dancers and other performers will get the chance to wow the judges, with the hope of winning a spot on TV in front of Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges.

Children under 18 need to be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian at the auditions, and they will be asked to register on arrival.

In a separate event, fans of the show will also be able to see pre-selected auditionees performing at a Britain’s Got Talent showcase at the Spa Pavilion lounge bar on Thursday, October 11, at 7.30pm.

Admission to view this event, being staged in association with Thames TV. is free, but the Spa is suggesting that people get there early to be sure of a good view.

Hundreds of hopefuls went along to the Regent Theatre in Ipswich this weekend to try for a spot in the show, hoping to follow the example of Stowmarket magician Matt Edwards, who battled through to last year’s final.
