Have You Got The Y-Factor?

The YOUTH FACTOR is a talent show for children and young people organised by Exeter's Neighbourhood police.

All talents are welcome - not just singers - to audition with the goal of performing to a 'live' audience at the Wonford Community Centre on the 2nd June 2012.

Are you a budding magician or juggler, have a hidden talent as a ventriloquist and don't mind performing in front of a encouraging audience?

The format will be the same as the X factor. 

Auditions will be performed in front of a panel of judges and then those that go through will be invited to appear on the live final.

No cost for entrants and no charge for entrance to the show.

Auditions to appear on the 'live' show will be held at the youth clubs. 

The main event will be at the Queens Golden Jubilee celebrations in Wonford. 

The 'live' show audience will be open to the general public.
