Two young Little Mix fans will see their idols live in Norwich after impressing with their artwork.
Young followers of the band – made up of Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – were urged to get their colouring pens out and design and create posters and banners showing their love for the band with the winners getting tickets to the Earlham Park gig.
After receiving a number of high class entries promoters Cuffe and Taylor chose Robyn Clarke, 11, and Chelsey Bennett, 11, as the competition winners.
“We’re delighted so many Mixers have got on board and entered this competition,” said Cuffe and Taylor director Peter Taylor. “It has been very difficult to pick the winners as it is clear these youngsters have really taken their time to produce some brilliant posters.
“We love what Robyn and Chelsey have created so they will both win a family ticket for four to see Little Mix at Earlham Park. We would also like to say thank you to everyone else who entered the competition, we think you are all ace Mixers.”
The Norwich date, on September 3, marks an extension to the band’s 15-date ‘Summer Shout Out’ tour.
The four-piece, who have just released a new version of the hit CNCO single Reggaeton Lento, will be supported in Norwich by Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt and the Germein Sisters.
Opening the show will be Australia’s Germein sisters, an indie pop band comprised of siblings Georgia, Ella and Clara Germein. The trio have been turning heads across the globe after their debut single Da Da Doo entered the Top 100 Mainstream Radio Charts in Germany.
They will be followed by Nesbitt, who hails from Edinburgh, and is best known for her song, Stay Out, which peaked at number 21 in the UK singles chart after its release in 2013.
Mr Taylor, added: “To announce two very different but very talented support acts is great, and I can assure all Mixers they are going to have a brilliant night.
“Little Mix are, without a doubt, one of the UK’s most successful pop acts and the response to their tour this year has been absolutely phenomenal so get ready Norwich, this is going to be a fantastic end to the summer.”
Twenty thousand people are set to flock to Earlham Park to see the girl group perform.
