This competition will give someone the opportunity to break into their dream career, with a cash prize of £5,000 and the coveted title as the ‘Voice of Soho’. However, there’s a catch –  you can’t currently be performing in the West End or in a singing contract.

The competition will run over four months, with eight heats and with eight contestants in each, beginning on January 28 and culminating in the grande finale on April 15.

The judging panel shall be comprised of West End star and former X Factor finalist, Brenda Edwards, who is currently staring as Killer Queen, the lead role in We Will Rock You. She’ll be joined by Mike Hanson, an experienced radio producer, along with one other industry professional and a different guest celebrity each week. The public will also have a chance to vote for their favourite runner up each week, with the most popular securing a wild card entry in the final.

If you’ve ‘dreamed a dream’ that you could be the next West End star or think you know of someone who deserves the ‘Voice of Soho’ title, get your applications in now for the chance to take part. Just by registering on the Archer Street website, supporters of acts shall receive guest list entry and 20% off on the night.
