Pride’s Got Talent shines the spotlight on upcoming LGBTQ+ talent, celebrating and platforming emerging performers. Entering its eleventh year, it’s an opportunity to take part in an exciting competition within a positive and uplifting environment. The contest is held across multiple London LGBTQ+ venues with industry professional judges aiding in the growth of their artistry and careers, and culminates in a live final on a London West End theatre stage.

There are two sides to the contest:

  • Music - for live music acts, singers and songwriters;

  • Cabaret - anything you could consider under the umbrella of cabaret!

How it runs: Online Auditions - Live Heats - Live Semi-Finals - Live Grand Final

The winner from each side of the contest will receive a prize package including £1000 to help further their careers and a slot slot to perform at Trafalgar Square for Pride In London on 1st July 2023. The Music winner will be given the opportunity to release an EP of their music with BMG's Production Music library. The Cabaret winner will have their own show produced at a London venue. Further details to be announced.

Auditions for Pride's Got Talent 2023 will be opening on Monday 6th February.
