Would you like to perform on the world-famous City Varieties stage at a prestigious awards ceremony? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
What we’re looking for:
Individuals or groups who have a talent for entertaining; it could be singing, playing an instrument, dancing, comedy or magic.

• Performers must be available on Thursday 2nd February (the day of the awards) from 4pm until the end of the awards at approx. 9.00pm
