Managing Director of Now That’s Entertainment, James Alton, will be on the Riva’s Got Talent judging panel. He said: “We’re currently in production of series three of our unique online talent show.

“The winner of Riva’s Got Talent will be put straight through to the judge’s showreel stage of the competition.

“We hold live finals and the eventual winner will receive £1,500. They will also get the opportunity to be mentored, and for us to find them gigs to get them ‘out there’ and on to bigger and better things.”

A children’s contest with £25 prize money will take place from 6pm to 8.45pm. The adult competition begins at 9pm. Tickets are £3.50, and it’s free entry for performers.
