Huddersfield’s Got Talent returns with a twist

THE BIGGEST talent search in town is back for a third year – with a difference.

THE BIGGEST talent search in town is back for a third year – with a difference.

This year’s Huddersfield’s Got Talent (HGT), which returns to Honley Socialist Club in August, includes expert mentoring for the competition’s best contestants.

The contest, organised by X-Factor veteran Scott Hallas, will be judged by arts teacher Duncan Train and singer last year’s HGT winner Lorna Bursell.

From the semi-finals both will tutor the best contestants to help them win the £500 prize and a custom made trophy.

Scott said: “This year the competition takes on a slightly different twist as the judges are mentoring acts this year in order to give them the best possible chance

“This year each judge will get a set amount of people to mentor during the semi-finals and grand final.

“Don’t hide your light under a bush. This contest could really make things happen for you.”

Judge Lorna Bursell added: ‘I am very pleased to be judging this year and feel Huddersfield has a lot of hidden talent just waiting to be discovered.”

HGT takes place every Saturday night in August with auditions on the 6th and 13th, with the semi-final on the 20th and the final on the 27th.
