Come on down – it’s free. That’s the message from the Open Air Theatre, Scarborough, for its weekly programme of entertainment.

A talent show for bands and soloists is held each Tuesday and Wednesday as part of Gary T Davies’ Family Funtime.

The heats take place on the Tuesday with nine slots to be filled and then the winner performs in Wednesday’s show.

They share the bill with girl duo Distracted who sang at the Olympic Torch ceremony earlier this year.

Also accompanying Gary throughout the season are members of Hatton School of Performing Arts.

“This is a fabulous opportunity for vocalists, bands and other performers to come down to the theatre and get some experience on the big stage,” said Gary.

“They can come down on the day with their backing CD or instruments, fill in a form and, if picked, be on thestage that afternoon competing against other acts for aplace in the Wednesday show.”

The summer programme features shows on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 2pm until August 30.

Monday and Thursday the programme is: Scarborough-based singer James Aconley and Friends, including Rebekah Kelly and Katie Gregson, present songs from Glee and High School Musical

Tuesday and Wednesdays: Gary T Davies Family Funtime including talent show.
