Introducing Harlequin Live from Lockdown, your chance to step into the spotlight!
Harlequin Live from Lockdown is an online competition which celebrates the wealth of talent in our community. It showcases the local performing arts scene while we are all missing live performances, and gives the chance to win a place on our main stage.
If you are an aspiring performer, we invite you to enter by submitting a short video clip of you performing. Actors, dancers, musicians, singers, poets, magicians… all are welcome! You may already perform regularly in front of a crowd; you may only ever have done so in front of your bathroom mirror. Either way, we want to hear from you.
All entries will be shared with our thousands of followers on social media and on our website. Shortly after the entry period ends, online voting will open and the public can vote for their favourite acts. The most popular will be invited to perform on the Harlequin’s main stage next year, when we will be hosting a special event.
- All local performers can enter, from singers to dancers, actors to magicians and more
