Suffolk’s Got Talent

FOLLOWING the massive success of previous competitions, Leiston Film Theatre will once again be producing another talent contest, which will offer the lucky winner an opportunity to perform at a national talent showcase.


Suffolk’s Got Talent is scheduled to appear at the Leiston Film Theatre on Saturday 17th February 2018 and will feature a cast of the counties hopefuls, who will compete for the £250 cash prize, plus a gold spot at a national talent showcase, performing in front of booking agents from the leisure industry.

The competition is open to any Suffolk resident, aged five years and over and there is no restriction to any considered talent from entering the contest, as producers want to hear from singers, dancers, musicians, magicians, comedians and even talented pets!

The competition will be overseen by a panel of professional judges, consisting of experienced agents, personalities and artistes, who will comment on each individual act and select the overall winner from the contestants participating in the event.

Previous winner, Maddie Coelho from Charsfield, has appeared all over the country since winning Suffolk’s Got Talent in 2010 and is currently playing Dorothy is a national tour of The Wizard of Oz. Maddie will be returning to the venue in June 2018, to appear in their ‘End of the Pier’ variety show and is looking forward to returning to the stage where her journey began.

Leiston Film Theatre manager, Wayne Burns, is determined to discover another Suffolk star. “Suffolk has a huge variety of talented acts and the aim of this competition is to showcase those talents in front of a live audience and to make an impression on those judges.” he said.
