Britain’s Got Talent auditions come to London next month

The nation’s favourite talent show is coming to south London next month looking for a talented act to take the crown of our 17th series.

Britain’s Got Talent is holding open auditions where Londoners are invited to present their unique and spectacular talents in person.

Are you a singing sensation like Susan Boyle? Do you have the magic touch like Cillian O’Connor? Or the dancing dexterities of Diversity? If so, Britain’s Got Talent wants to meet you!

The show is open to any performer of any age, with any talent – all they need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress. Anything goes from magicians to comedians, drag acts to singers and acrobats to animals. Aspiring acts can apply now via to register for one of the audition days or simply turn up on the day.

Successful acts could be in with the chance of performing in front of the BGT judges – and be crowned the 2024 Britain’s Got Talent champion – walking away with a coveted spot in the Royal Variety Performance and a huge £250,000 cash prize.

Open auditions will take place at The Kia Oval on Saturday and Sunday November 11-12 from 10am to 5pm.

Britain’s Got Talent has delivered some of the most talked about performances and most memorable TV moments of the last decade and more, including Diversity, Calum Scott, Lost Voice Guy and superstar singer Susan Boyle. But can you follow in the comedy footsteps of series 16 winner Viggo Venn?

    Clowns, stooges, mime artists (Kerswell), comedians, buffoons and slap-stick applicants all available from the top layers at 8 Mint Walk, Croydon !

  2. Is there any real talent in Croydon???

    • Ian Kierans says:

      Of course there is Mr Myers.

      We have
      1. In the Group stage – a (unlawful?) rap. Introducing the Leader and support who I think has become the biggest loan defaulter in public office assisted by a deputy and his chorus – but strangely that whole chorus was silent, abstained, went on hols and were really not involved and still deny any involvement despite beng on the recordings in the studio (Public Council meetings)!.

      2. The dynamic Duo. One who wrote a planing manual SPD2 that managed to irritate a Borough it was supposed to assist, but instead instigated a referendum that led to an even more unpopular person being elected. (Who said behaviour begets behaviour?) In tandeM with –(drum roll) The side kick that has the novel method of discharging conditions without evidence of said being met. The creative use of retrospective planning applications to make perfectly legal a development that although perhaps not strictly legal in reality, was still a perfectly legal development, but perhaps may not have been building conditions legal, or even actually fully developed! -All without any notes at all on that original decision!- Definitly magic and illusion at its best!

      3. The Trapeze (Manager)- who despite taking over the worst Public Borough in the Country with the worst services managed to make it even more notable for the wrong reasons A national TV appearance on how to create the worst Public sector living environment and the real loss of credibility whilst giving a whole new meaning to a death from a thousand cuts, She actually did a good Oliver twist impression and asked for more …. Pay!

      4. The Contortionist – A Mayor elected to a post created by a referendum who then refused to give those that elected him a lawful referendum to decide on tax hikes and has delived only on one utterance that was not even in the manifesto-( Things are going to get worse) – so far. (You really could not make this shit up)

      5. The straight comic Act – Mr (flip flop) Philp known as the go to Minister to deliver garbage other ministers dare not. His main talant is to smile fixidly when called a liar on public TV (16 times was it?) and continue to repeat inanely, sentances only the most gullible could believe. Jack Dee watch out!

      6. The Super Group of – budding singers, writers musicians, artistes growing and entertaining us in the borough from not just the BRIT school but many other schools and garages across the Borough that have never been recognised or funded by this Administration (but the Giraffes have been).

      7. The Magnificant seventh. SD presents IC and the News – Yes (y)our very own Digital disclosure mag. The eponymous rap about the crap we all fact daily. Lamar, Drake, West with a large dose of Eminem stlye prose refuting Snoop’s advice to Rik Rok at every turn. And dishing the dirt on the top 5.

      I am sure there are many more worthies we residents could add from previous years and from what I see there are many more to come.
