MP named as guest judge for Arundel's Got Talent Final


Arundel & South Downs MP Nick Herbert has been named as the guest judge for the upcoming final of Arundel's Got Talent taking place as part of the Arundel Festival.

Arundel's Got Talent has been running throughout July and August with hopefuls competing for a final which takes place on Bank Holiday Monday.

Acts have just one more opportunity to audition for a place in the final, with one last audition taking place. Interested acts are being invited to visit the Jubilee stage at the Arundel Festival, or visit the website: to find out how they can enter.

The heats so far have seen a range of acts including singing, dancing and playing musical instruments.

The competition is split into two age groups; with an under 19 section sponsored by Wow Creative, and a 19 and over section which is sponsored by Chichester Music Services.

So far judges have seen acts of all ages performing, ranging from those as young as five to those in their eighties, all vying to prove that their talent is worthy of the Arundel's Got Talent crown.

During this event, we have witnessed unique talent , tremendous enthusiasm and spirit from all ages".

"I've been hearing great things about the entrants and I look forward to seeing the finalists."
