    Under the Sea Fun


    Dive into Yeo Leisure Park in Yeovil on Thursday 4th August between 11.00am and 4.00pm for some Under The Sea Fun. Inspired by the release of the new film ‘Finding Dory’, the leisure park will be transformed into an underwater world full of fun activities for all of the family. There will be some great offers on the day and all activity is free so you do not even have to ‘splash’ out.  Children are invited to take part in a ‘Finding Dory’ themed treasure hunt whereby they will need to search for Dory stickers located on windows around the park.  These will help them spell out words on their sheet and a completed sheet means treasure! The children will receive a goodie bag full of sea themed goodies including a notebook, crayons, bubbles, treats and a fish water squirter.  For the creative kids, there will be a fun craft workshop. Children can decorate their own Nemo or Finding Dory themed keepsake box which they can then take ashore with them and back home.  There will also be bubble shows taking place throughout the day and sea themed stilt walkers roaming around the park. 
    The event will be taking place outside Nuffield Health Gym and Pizza Hut. It accompanies the new film release, ‘Finding Dory’ which will launch at Cineworld Yeovil on 29th July. Tickets can be pre booked at 


    Quedam Shopping Centre on Monday 25th July from 12pm - 4pm.

    The nation’s favourite talent show is hitting the road once again, scouring the length and breadth of the country to find talented acts for our brand new series.
    The Britain’s Got Talent team is coming here! If you think you have got a talent which can impress and entertain, now is the time to show them what you have got.  Successful acts will then be in with a chance of securing a place at one of the judges’ auditions in 2017.
    The show is open to any performer of any age, with any talent - all you need is a skill and star quality which they think will impress. Anything goes from magicians to comedians, drag acts to singers and acrobats to animals.

    Aspiring acts can also apply now via  and register for one of the audition days later in the year.  You can also apply by sending in a video audition of your act.
    Executive Producer, Amelia Brown, said “We’ve had some amazing winners over the last ten series, from this year’s champion Richard Jones, who was the first magician to ever win the show, right through to Paul Potts, Diversity and Collabro. We can’t wait to see what talent your town has to offer.  Anyone can apply - there is no age limit and we are looking for all kinds of talents, so if you feel you have something special to show us then make sure you apply, you never know where it might take you.”
    This year marked the 10th anniversary of Britain’s Got Talent with soldier and magician Richard Jones being crowned the winner. The magician captivated the nation with his mind-reading performances and his moving finale performance and tribute to WWII prisoner of war and magician, Fergus Anckorn. Later this year, Richard will fulfil his dream of performing in front of The Royal Family at the Royal Variety Performance. He is also appearing in the thrilling West End show Impossible at the Noël Coward Theatre this summer.
    Among the show’s other successes, Susan Boyle has sold over 20 million records worldwide, Diversity have had five sell-out nationwide tours, Paul Potts is a multi-platinum selling artist with over 5 million records sold worldwide and in excess of 600 concerts performed and 2014’s winners, Collabro have had a number one album.
