Your Act
Your act needs to be between 8 and 12 minutes long and will be timed. An adjudicator will be in each room and after 8 minutes will show a green card which means you are between 8 and 11 minutes and can finish. At 11 minutes an orange (or amber) card will be shown to indicate the last minute. After 12 minutes a red card is shown and you will be disqualified so do stop before the red card.
Remember you will be performing in 2 rooms so you will need to reset after your first performance.
Ticket Refunds
The cost of your ticket will be refunded to you at the end of the competition.
Audience Voting
At the start of the show all audience members will be given a voting card. Anyone who arrives after the the first act has started or any audience member who leaves the room before the last act has finished will not been permitted to vote
