Stardom beckons

SINGERS and bands from Northumberland have the chance to make a name for themselves if they enter a national competition.

The North East audition for Live and Unsigned, a contest for all styles of music, will take place in The Journal Tyne Theatre, Newcastle, on Sunday, February 19.

There are festival slots in Canada, Italy and Dublin up for grabs for the acts that make it to the Grand Final at The O2 in London and the winners will get £10,000 to spend on their development.
