Open auditions held for performance spot at major city event
InExeter and Radio Exe have teamed up to offer local singers and bands the chance to ‘Star InExeter’ and win a slot at this year’s Christmas light switch on event. Taking place on Thursday 16 November, the event attracts thousands of city residents and visitors who come together to celebrate the beginning of the festive season.
Professional staging will once again be erected in Princesshay Square with three hours of family friendly entertainment planned. The evening will be hosted by Radio Exe who will welcome special guests to the stage at 6.15pm to press the button that will switch on Exeter’s Christmas lights.
Star InExeter opened in October with bands and singers sending their audition pieces into Radio Exe. The organisers are also holding open auditions on Saturday 4 November at Exeter Phoenix at 11am. Patrick Cunningham of Exeter Phoenix and Ann Hunter, manager of Exeter BID and InExeter will be joined by Radio Exe presenter Ashley Jeary to judge the hopefuls.
