AN annual concert that promotes the talents of young Verwood people is returning to the town for the eighth year running in March.

There are no auditions for the Talented Youth concert, to be held at the Hub on March 2, but performers need to put in their applications by January 26.

The event gives children aged four to 18 the opportunity to perform on a stage to a wider theatre audience, and the standard of the performances is always high. Anyone can take part providing they or one person from their group live in Verwood or Three Legged Cross. For further information contact Alison and Pete Manley at or on 01202 826563.
