The first ‘Search for a Star’ talent competition will showcase Burgess Hill performers with star quality on Saturday (July 19).
Visitors and judges in The Martlets Shopping Centre will watch Bright FM’s Rick Daley, Martlets centre manager Ian Goodridge and Andy Penfold, a Simon Cowell lookalike among others.
The winning performer will receive £350, with prizes of £100 for second place and £50 for third.
