Throughout August and September, Chester Pride will be searching for a star in the making, giving a lucky individual the chance to perform on the Pride stage in front of a crowd of around 3,000 people.
Chester Pride is taking place on Saturday, October 4, in Grosvenor Park, and is a celebration of diversity and support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Chester Pride entertainment manager Warren Allmark said: “Although we have had an overwhelming amount of people ask to perform at Chester Pride this year, Pride’s Got Talent will give us the opportunity to see potential acts perform live and gauge audience reaction. We hope that local performers get involved and that people come along to support them and enjoy some live music.”
Chester Pride’s Got Talent is being organised by gay-friendly venues the Old Queens Head and The Liverpool Arms. A series of heats will take place with the grand final being held on Friday, September 29, in the Liverpool Arms. To enter the competition, performers must complete an application which is available from the host venues. Applications cost £5 with funds going to Chester Pride charity.
