Jack Petchey Glee Club Challenge is back and boasting patronage from comedian and Eurovision presenter Graham Norton.

The music and dance project is aimed at young performers in Croydon offering them the chance to win thousands of pounds in prizes and even perform at the 02.

The event, launched last year, is a flagship programme of the Jack Petchey Foundation inspired by the Glee TV show.

It is designed to find the best groups of young musical talent from London and Essex and is open to schools, youth clubs, drama and dance groups, friends with a passion for performing, established groups or those just starting out.

Entrants must be aged between 11 and 25 and groups must number between eight and 30 performers.

The top 27 groups will be invited to perform in one of three regional finals in September with the best nine progressing to compete in the grand final in November.
