Strut your way to Leeds Festival
Join our festival volunteers and staff at Leeds Festival this August by winning tickets in a competition to find the UK's best novelty dancers. One of only two live auditions will take place at 7.30pm at our Students' Union at City Campus on May 29. Groups of up to six can strut their stuff for a panel of well-known comedy judges including Carl Donnelly, Paul McCaffrey, Damian Clark, Eric Lampeart and Tom Deacon.
Three groups from each live audition round will win weekend tickets to Reading or Leeds Festival to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime chance to perform in front of the crowds at the Alternative Stage. Three further groups of the judges favourite online entries will also win weekend tickets and go through to the finals at each site and battle their rivals live on the Alternative Stage.
Come along to the live audition or film an entry and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12pm on 15 July (putting 'Reading Novelty Dance' or 'Leeds Novelty Dance' as the subject line).
Register for the Leeds live audition via Facebook.
