Shine! - Knowsley's Culture and Creative Showcase event

Do you have a talent – for singing, dancing, acting, play an instrument, comedy, poetry… or something different? If so, Knowsley needs you!

Auditions will take place this summer to find the most incredible performers in Knowsley who would like to showcase their skills at a prestigious event taking place in the borough, organised by Knowsley Council.

The first ever Knowsley Showcase entitled “Shine” is a chance for musicians, dancers, poets, actors, filmmakers, gamers – in fact, anyone with a fantastic talent to show – to experience performing live in front of a live audience. You never know, if could be your first step on the road to success and stardom!

Auditions are now being organised to help identify the very best performers to be picked to be part of this exciting event so if you think you might have what it takes to add the ‘wow factor’ to the event, then now’s the time to get your audition ready!

And don’t forget, come along to the Feelgood Festival on 4 August 2018 and you’ll be able to get a sneak preview of the talent that will be on show by watching the auditions!
