AUDITIONS for a music showcase will be held in Clacton on Friday.

Volunteers who run Clacton Livegig are planning an event later this year which will see the area’s top acts perform.

Eight acts will audition at a preliminary event with the top performers going on to appear at the main show.

The auditions will take place at Firs caravan Park in London Road on Friday. Doors open at 7.15pm for a 7.45pm start.

Entrance will cost £3. All proceeds from the auditions and the main event will go to the victims who lost their homes in the Cloes Lane gas blast.
