The popular singing talent show, The X Factor will return to host open mic auditions in Southampton on May 14.
Last year, the auditions took place in WestQuay shopping centre. The auditions will now be at new venue The 1865, located on Brunswick Street in Southampton’s city centre.
Jamie Ford, spokesman for the venue, told the Daily Echo:
“We’re really pleased to be welcoming a set of official X Factor auditions to The 1865. Not only is it great for our venue, but it’s also great for Southampton – a city full of art and flair.
The X Factor production team are looking for a range of fresh talent, and we have no doubt this city holds just that.”
21-year-old Tom Mann from Southampton managed to make it through to week eight on the live shows last year with the boy band Stereo Kicks.
The open mic auditions will take place from 8pm until 11pm on May 14 at The 1865. All entrants must be aged 16 and over. To book your slot, call 023 8022 2605.
