Our Winners!

1st Place

A new wave balladeer Kirsty’s rock lyrics paint dark stories set to a kicking beat - riveting!

After a summer of our semi-finalists storming the Performance Zone at Breeze on Tour and a glittering night of top class performances from our finalists, our Judges had their work cut out. But someone has to win so many many congratulations to Kirsty White, Sam Pidgeon and Dylan Brierley and a massive round of applause for everyone who stepped up to the mike this summer.

Special thanks go to our two comperes, Dudley Dixon (Just-D) and Mercedes and our amazing judges - Christine Bates, Isaac Heywood, Jitka Tumova!

So here (in alphabetical order) are our finalists, with their youtube clips, congratulations everyone!

The Heats 2013

All our semi-finalists strutted their stuff at the Performance Zone at Breeze on Tour this summer and you can check out their You Tube clips below. Read up on Breeze Has Talent further down the page.


Breeze would like to give everyone that auditioned for us in June a massive round of applause, the talent on show was outstanding and it was extremely difficult for the Judges to make their decision on who should go through to heats (held at Breeze on Tour during the summer) to then go through to the grand finale. 

The winner of Breeze has Talent will perform live on stage at the Leeds Christmas Lights switch on! The 1st Place act will also receive prizes worth £300* - the 2nd Place act will receive prizes worth £200* - and the 3rd Place act will receive prizes worth £100*.

Leeds City Council will also be working in partnership with Trinity Leeds and their partners to offer performance opportunities all year round. Last year's winners The Amazing Scuba Divers, Maia Broughton and Distorted Sky all performed on the CBBC Main Stage on Millennium Square in July.

And here are your semi- finalists!

And finally…

Breeze has Talent is open to ALL young people living within the Leeds Metropolitan boundaries and aged between 8 – 19. This includes any young people who have taken part in previous Breeze has Talent competitions. If an act has members living outside Leeds, we accept the application providing at least half the members are from within the Leeds area.

Please remember: the aim of Breeze has Talent is to offer young performers the chance to develop skills and confidence by taking part in a friendly competition that we hope is fun but also challenging – it isn’t just about winning!

*Leeds City Council is unable to offer prizes in cash. What we can do – and this is where we can really help you in your performing career – is to help buy you the things you need as a performer. This could be things like buying items of musical equipment, stage costume, paying for rehearsal space or time in a recording studio, paying for a dance teacher or singing coach, putting together a website, or even travel and tickets to performances – almost anything that will help you with your performing ambitions!

Hello Hannah,
Unfortunately the auditions will only be taking place on Sunday 30th June. Are you restricted with time for the full day? We do have a couple of slots left in the afternoon, if you would like to drop me an email on the address above i will let you know what slots we have left and see if they are any good

Thanks :)

I would really like to have an audition but i have a rehearsal for a show that day. Is this the only day there will be a chance to audition?

My band REALLY want to enter this year as we missed our chance last year however our friends (The Amazing Scuba Divers - last year's winners) said they had an amazing time!
However, the problem is that we have a mentoring day for the Centre Stage finals on the 30th also so I was wondering what the times were for your auditions please? Our mentoring day starts at 11am so is there any chance we could audition before then?
