Crowdfunders Required To Back Bude Talent

Talent show will raise funds for Bude Sea Pool

BigUpBude Talent must raise £750 ASAP to get this exciting new event off the ground. In 2014, BigUpBude Talent will showcase musicians, singers, comedians and undiscovered stars from Bude and the surrounding area, raising funds for Bude Sea Pool in the process.

BigUpBude Talent is being set up through Crowdfunding. This works by rewarding the people who pledge money to support the project – so for BigUpBude Talent the rewards include VIP tickets to the final, plus access to the prestigious green room.

Entrants to the competition will send in a snapshot video audition, leading to semi-final and final shows. Entrants will compete for a trophy plus the prestigious first prize of performing at a local festival or popular venue. This will hopefully be the start of an ongoing annual event which gives local people the chance to showcase their talents while raising money for community projects. For the inaugural event, FoBSP have been nominated as the official ‘good cause’.

BigUpBude Talent need pledges of £25, £50, £100, £250 or more to get the ball rolling. If the CrowdFunding target of £750 isn’t reached by 18th July 2013 then the project won’t go ahead.

So don’t hang around – if you’d like to support the Sea Pool and big up Bude’s talent, see http://crowdfunder.co.uk/bigupbude-talent/
