If you think you’d like to be involved, and are able to perform in a secret location near Bath on the weekend of 27th May then we want you to get in touch."
Those wanting to enter must upload a video of their performance to youtube, email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org, before the closing date for entries, which is Feb 29th.
