The Great Western Hotel in Newquay has been chosen to host an X Factor audition as the hugely popular TV talent show comes to Cornwall for the first time.

The ITV hit show is sending a mobile audition unit to the county as part of a nationwide search for the next budding talent, and anyone aged 16 or over is invited to come along and show off their singing skills.

The audition will take place at the Great Western Hotel today, Sunday, March 30 between 10am and 3pm. Producers are asking people to simply turn up and enter, with no advanced booking required.

The X Factor’s mobile auditions aim to reach a wider group of prospective pop stars by visiting more venues across the UK over the next few months as part of the X Factor’s annual hunt for talented solo artists and vocal groups.

Barbara May, manager of the Great Western Hotel in Newquay, said: “It’s fantastic for Newquay to be hosting the mobile X Factor audition this coming Sunday. Hopefully we will get a really great turnout. We have live music here every Friday night, so we know what a great music scene Cornwall has. There are some really talented people out there so I’m confident we will see someone go through to the live shows.”

Event details: Sunday 30th March 10am – 3pm Great Western Hotel Cliff Rd Newquay Cornwall TR7 2NE
