Up-and-coming acts are being encouraged to take part in this year's annual Sunrise Talent contest. It will take place at the Hotel Victoria, Lowestoft, and there's also a prize for someone who comes up with the best nominat-ion for a charity to benefit from funds raised from the contest. The hotel is offering a family dinner for six to the winner whose idea is chosen by the organisers of the event.
The contest, run by The Journal, the hotel and community fundraisers Gwen Wick and Ann Youngman, has attracted a host of talent over the years. Last year, it was won by Katy Jones, with the inaugural winning magician, Luke Cook, going on to star in a summer season at Cromer Pier this year.
