When Newport's latest running sensation Sparkle the Unicorn approached us about hosting a brand new event to showcase the immense talent we know exists in the town we were very happy to help.
The inaugural Newport's Got Talent event will take place on Saturday 16th March in the Hamilton Hall. It won't be a competition, simply a celebration of the amazing talent of the town's young people. Open to any pupil at Haberdashers' Adams, Burton Borough or Newport Girls' High, auditions will be held here on Friday 8th February. Sparkle is looking for talented performers from any background: singers, dancers, magicians, gymnasts, comedians. If you've got a talent Sparkle wants to see it!
Any proceeds from the event will go to help Sparkle's favourite cause, VICTA - a charity which supports blind and visually impaired children and young adults.
Auditions have now taken place, all participants have been notified and are now polishing their acts. Tickets are available at £10/family (2 adults and their children) or £3/individual. These can be ordered via Sparkle's Just Giving Site
Please add a note with your name and tickets ordered. Tickets will be available to collect either from Haberdashers’ Adams Reception (please allow two working days) or at the door on the night. Alternatively, please email your request to Sparkle and your tickets will be placed in an envelope for you to pay for and collect on the night. Participants can also purchase tickets during rehearsals.
