EXCITEMENT is building ahead of the launch of this year’s Ipswich Has Got Talent.

The show returns in October for the fifth year and this time the theme will be stage or film musicals.

Members of the public are invited to the launch on Saturday, where there will be five acts performing, plus refreshments.

Supported by Suffolk Constabulary and Ipswich Borough Council as well as the Ipswich Star, the show will see local talented stars sing a number of classics from shows including The Lion King and Mamma Mia.

Kevin Smith, representing the Ipswich Has Got Talent Committee, said: “We are really looking forward to this year’s event – it should be the best yet and we are encouraging all ages/groups from any background to come forward and show just how much talent Ipswich has. They can perform a song, dance to music or perform specialist acts, they can be alone, a pair, bands, or a choir – everyone is welcome.”

The first audition will be at The Kingfisher pub on May 19 at 3pm, followed by The New Spread Eagle on June 9 at 5pm, Isaacs on June 16 at 11am and Revolucion de Cuba on June 30 at 3pm.

Tickets are already on sale for the final on Saturday, October 26, at 7.30pm at the Ipswich Regent. To book call the Regent Theatre Box Office on 01473 433100 or visit www.ipswichregent.com
