The enthusiasm, standard and diversity of the acts were way beyond our expectations. Having set such high standards in 2009, this year the judges are eagerly anticipating an even greater breadth and depth of acts from our local community. If you can sing, dance, juggle, eat fire or make people laugh please come along to the auditions and again demonstrate that Stevenage has got talent."
