The UK’s favourite singing show, The X Factor, is back and on the lookout for the next big breakout music stars as they travel the length and breadth of the country on the 2016 audition tour.

The tour will be visiting Peterborough on Wednesday, 9 March with auditions at Queensgate Shopping Centre, 9 – 5.30pm. This is part of the Mobile Audition Tour, which is visiting over 40 towns and cities across the country. Groups or solo singers aged 16+ can apply by just turning up.

The Peterborough audition is part of a UK-wide tour where the team will be searching high and low bringing the auditions directly to you in the hunt for singing sensations. So if you think you could be the next Louisa Johnson, One Direction, Little Mix, Ella Henderson or Olly Murs, or you know someone you think could be, now is the time to come along and showcase your vocal talent.

For anyone who isn’t able to make it to any of the cities you can also send in your own video audition via our website

Acts are advised to turn up early to the Open Auditions and Mobile Auditions. On the Mobile Audition Tour, auditions are on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to turn up early to grab a slot. On the larger-scale Open Audition Tour everyone who turns up will be guaranteed an audition. All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified.

If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in summer. The hit show has uncovered some outstanding talent across the years. To date, One Direction have sold 55 million records worldwide, Olly Murs has achieved success with four multi-platinum albums and to date, Little Mix have sold 3.3 million albums globally. Last year’s winner Louisa Johnson is currently working on her debut album.

The X Factor will return to ITV later this year alongside sister show, The Xtra Factor on ITV 2. Fans of the show can follow all the action via @TheXFactor on Twitter and Instagram and on
