I spotted this competition being publicised on Facebook earlier this week. Hopefully there's still spaces available?
"If you're a young musician aged between 13-17 with talent and inspiration, then this event is your chance to be in the spotlight! Bonners Music Superstore is looking for a maximum of 30 musicians including drummers, guitarists, contemporary pianists and singers of all types to perform their best 2 minute solo spot on stage at the Birley Centre in Eastbourne on Tuesday 18th Feb 2014 at 6.30pm.
Performers are asked to prepare a 2 minute performance, with three outstanding finalists being selected to win fantastic prizes. You can choose to perform any piece you like - your own composition or your own version of a favourite song.
Adjudicators including local teachers and representatives from big names in the music business will be looking for style, feeling and presentation.
The three finalists will receive valuable prizes sponsored by Bonners Music Superstore (*top prize is £200 to spend in the store!) plus the opportunity to perform in the Eastbourne Festival Concert at The Winter Garden on Sunday 2nd March.
And there’s more! A further two of the most outstanding performances will be selected by the adjudicators to have a free recording session at CMP Studios in Eastbourne."
