On the 22nd of last month, Teen Star auditions took place at the Hove Centre. Despite a lot of talent on show, only a few could move forward to the Regional Finals, scheduled for April 5th at the same venue. X Factor's Jahméne Douglas and Kingsland Road will be performing following that stage - tickets for the Regional Finals are available direct from Teen Star, tickets for Jahmene Douglas and Kingsland Road can be found from See Tickets or your preferred ticketing outlet.

While Teen Star was only for the under 19's, 2014's Open Mic UK competition is for all ages, and auditions will be sometime in September. Apply now! As studio partner, prizes for entrants include a free half-day at Hidden Cam, amongst other opportunities on a local and national scale depending on how well you do in the competition.

Aside from that, the debut Clowns album is completed and preparing for press and printing. Expect that in a few months. King Lagoon's Flying Swordfish Dance Band have been in, with a live show recorded at London's Floripa nightclub last year being prepared for radio play, and a debut album expected in the Summer.

Upcoming gigs in Brighton - friends of the studio The Beautiful Word are performing with Abi Wade at St. George's Church on the 20th March as a fundraiser for Kemp Town Carnival - tickets are selling quick so get booking!
