Time is ticking away for amateur singers and musicians looking to book their place on stage at the final of this year's Gorleston Makes Music competition.

Entry forms have to be in by Thursday, June 30, with auditions at East Norfolk Sixth Form College on July 15 from noon to 7pm. The winner gets £250 plus a chance to record in a local studio, while the runner-up will receive £100 and the third-placed act £50. The other finalists will receive £25 per act as a contribution to their expenses.

Gorleston Makes Music is open to any musician, singer, group, band or choir of any age and genre for whom music is not their main source of income. Six acts will get to perform in the final on the Rotary Bandstand in Gorleston, on Sunday, August 21 from noon to 3.30pm.

Performers will appear before an audience of local people and holidaymakers, who will be invited to bring a picnic. The top three acts in the final will be chosen by a panel of judges.
