Over 150 children gathered at Midsummer Place earlier this month to showcase their talents in the hopes of winning a part of the £1,000 cash prize and the opportunity to join the MB Talent platform.

The singing and dancing auditions were held in the shopping centre on June 18th to find finalists for a competitions later this year.

Judged by managing director Joel Kern and industry experts, the auditions were judged across junior (6-9 years old) and senior categories (10+) to whittled down the long list of entrants to 40 finalists.

The finalists will now compete for the crown and £500 each at Stantonbury Theatre in October.

Previous winners have gone on to become stars, with 2018 finalist Klaudia Gjergji starring in West End production ‘On Your Feet’ this year, and 2017 winner Charis Tetteh taking a role in ‘School of Rock’ since last year.

Marketing Manager at Midsummer Place, Kirsty McGiff said, “The event was a huge success, and it is incredible to see the huge array of talent we have in Milton Keynes. Well done to everyone that took part whether you were a finalist or not.”
