Darnall's Got Talent!

“For a moment we thought that the X Factor Judges had dropped into Darnall Forum on their way to the Don Valley Stadium. But no, it’s Darnall Forum’s own talent contest judges, Shabana Sajer, Neil Bishop and Anne Shirling.”

Darnall Forum is challenging the talented people of Darnall to perform at this year’s Darnall Carnival on Saturday 5 July, alongside headline act Juggy D.

‘We’re offering local people a chance to show they’ve got talent in a five minute slot on stage,’ said Shabana, who is managing the celebrity acts for the annual Carnival in High Hazels Park. But, to take part in the Carnival, local people will have to audition before the judges on Thursday 26 June between 4.30 and 6pm.

‘We’re expecting lots of interest,’ says Anne, who works with Shabana as a community engagement officer for the Forum, ‘So if you want to perform at the Carnival you will need to come along to the Forum offices at 245 Main Road on that afternoon and show us just how much talent you’ve got!’
