Stratford Editorial 26th Nov, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

BRITAIN’S Got Talent is coming to Stratford.

The production team for the hit ITV series are scouting out talent ahead of the audition process.

Researchers and a camera will be on the look out for talented people in Stratford on December 9 everywhere from drama schools to open mic nights.

Winners of the talent show – hosted by comedy duo Ant and Dec – get to perform in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Show.

Previous winners include dance troupe Diversity, shadow theatre group Attraction and singer Susan Boyle.

This is the tenth year the series has run and this year someone from Stratford is talented enough to go the distance.

Acts of all kinds and ages are welcome but anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Team member, Emily Smith is encouraging people to surprise the talent scouts with their weird and wonderful skills.

Contact Emily at emily.smith@thames.tv or call 02076 915138 if you would like the Britain’s Got Talent team to visit your college or venue.
