WE know Dorset has plenty of singing talent and now, hopefully, the rest of the UK will find out what we already know.

With early auditions for Britain’s biggest singing contest The X Factor coming to Bournemouth, there should be no shortage of people of all ages queuing up to give it a go.

From keen teens to crooning granddads, we may even find a winner among the many entrants. You never know!

So, don’t forget, pencil in April 1 on your calendar and get down to the Obscura Cafe in the Square.
