Are you an up-and-coming band, a talented dance group, or perhaps your dog can perform amazing tricks? The Brewery Quarter is looking for Cheltenham’s next stars to take to the stage and help bring the festive spirit to The Brewery Quarter’s Christmas light switch on this December 2016.

Whatever your talent, upload a short video clip of you performing and share it via The Brewery Quarter’s Facebook orTwitter pages before Wednesday 9th November 2016, tagging your video @TheBreweryChelt, and you could get the chance to perform live to thousands of Cheltonians at the Christmas Light Switch On.

Entries will be judged by The Brewery Quarter based on their entertainment value and suitability for all ages, the top 5 performances will then go to a public vote via The Brewery Quarter’s Facebook and Twitter pages. The performers with the most votes will become the next switch on stars, performing live on the stage.

Voting will take place between the 10th – 17th November and the winners will be announced on Friday 18th November, giving them two weeks to practice their switch on performance.

The Brewery Quarter’s Christmas light switch on will take place on Saturday 3 December 2016. Enjoy live performances from local musicians, delicious food and drink from The Brewery Quarter’s restaurants and bars, meet Father Christmas, and of course watch the switching on ceremony of The Brewery Quarter’s Christmas lights.

Marketing Manager for The Brewery Quarter, Demelsa Coleman says: “The date is set for the big event, we’re now looking for the perfect performers to help make the occasion. The Brewery Quarter’s Christmas light switch on is all about bringing together the local community. We’re really looking forward to celebrating Cheltenham’s talent so get your entries in.”
