The launch of Paisley Rotary Club’s Quest4Talent 2013 took place on 7th January 2013 at 4.30p.m in The David Lloyd Centre Renfrew,
This is the 5th year of this highly successful competition which has already helped some of Renfrewshire’s most talented performers on the road to success as well as raising many thousands of pounds for local and international charities.
This year as well as the usual categories for soloists, groups, bands, instrumentalists, choirs and dance there are two exciting new categories; musical theatre and traditional music. The traditional Scottish Category is a particularly exciting one for us with the MOD coming to Paisley in 2013, and we are hoping to get entries from traditional musicians and artists in the area. We are taking entries from young people from the ages of 6 up to 25 years old from Renfrewshire and all surrounding areas in the West of Scotland. Closing date for entries is 28th February 2013.
