THE COMMITTEE hoping to make this year's Pershore Carnival the best ever has made an urgent appeal for people to enter one its flagship events.

This year's Pershore's Got Talent competition has so far seen a lack of entrants with time ticking ahead of the crucial auditions date taking place on Sunday, April 22 at Pershore Town Football Club.

If given the thumbs up by the judging panel contestants will then get to battle it out in the grand final taking place on the day of the carnival - Bank Holiday Monday, June 4.

Contestants must have some kind of connection with Pershore to be able to enter and people of any age and any talent can apply as long as it is family entertainment based.

The winner of the competition will win a one-track recording session with Tower Studios based on the Pershore Trading Estate.

This year's carnival is hoped to be one of the best ever after a major revamp of the annual Pershore event was announced last year. This year the carnival will take on a jubilee theme to commemorate The Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Trudy Burge, from the Pershore Carnival Committee, told the Observer: "We really want people to enter and push this competition as hard as we can because it has the potential to be a real success. It is free to enter and want to see as many entrants take part as possible.

"I know there is a lot of talent at the High School and all the other schools in Pershore so it is just a case of getting them all motivated enough to enter.

"But you only have to look at someone like Giles Potter who started out by entering competitions like this and has gone on to win The W Factor and reached the grand finals of Open Mic UK.

"So what we are saying is by entering this competition just look at what could happen in the future. It could be the start of something special."

Application forms are available by visiting the Carnival's website at http://pershorecarnival.webs.com/ or by emailing Jessica Frost at jessicafrost43@yahoo.co.uk.
