VARIETY is the spice of life as a Northumberland talent show is back by popular demand.

In previous years, Northumberland’s Got Talent has entertained hundreds of families at an annual festival at Druridge Bay.

And this year The Big Event will return with a special Diamond Jubilee theme and a new venue, The Lodge at St Benet Biscop High School in Bedlington.

There will also be a new name – The Big Variety Show. Organisers are now seeking entrants for the show, with a deadline for applications of Tuesday.

For more information, or to apply for an audition, telephone 01670 820088, e-mail or visit

Auditions will be held at The Lodge on Thursday, May 10, from 3.30pm to 7pm.
