Barclays is celebrating the ongoing investment in its branch network with a competition to find the country’s hottest dance acts, and it's coming to Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester on Saturday 4 September.
The competition is open to anyone who thinks they've got what it takes to become Britain's next dancing superstar, be it as an individual, duo, group or troupe.
The top ten entries will be put through to live auditions, which will take place on Saturday 4 September on a stage at Piccadilly Gardens. These contestants will perform in front of a celebrity panel of judges including Strictly Come Dancing's Brendan Cole, as well as an audience made up of the great people of Manchester!
The top five acts will then be subject to a public vote to decide the winner via the Barclays Live website http://www.barclayslive.co.uk/.
The winning act will be waltzing away with a pair of VIP tickets to see Brendan Cole in action as well as dancing all the way to the bank with a cool £1,000!
To enter visit http://www.barclayslive.co.uk/ or send us a link to a YouTube video showing us your moves or email http://firstname.lastname@example.org along with your dance clip, name, phone number and postcode, before Sunday 29 August.
The Barclays Live auditions will form part of a day-long programme of events, including a dance master class by Brendan Cole and performances by a variety of fantastic dance acts.
The Barclays branch at 86/88 Market Street is packed full of ideas developed to make banking faster, easier and more enjoyable – including a dedicated self-service area, open counters and a spacious new Premier lounge.
Brendan Cole says "The Barclays Live competition is a great opportunity for talented dancers in Manchester and I am really looking forward to experiencing some fabulous performances. If you haven't entered the competition already, make it the very next thing you do, and I'd like to invite anyone in the area on Saturday 4 September to pop down to Piccadilly Gardens to join me for a whole host of dancing fun."
