The Voice looks for talent in Lincolnshire

Perfect voice: BBC One’s The Voice will be coming to a village near Lincoln for pre-auditions next week.

— This event is now fully booked.

Popular music show The Voice UK will head to Lincolnshire to find undiscovered talent in the county.

Members from BBC1’s The Voice UK production team are meeting with singers that would like to apply for series four of the show on May 12 at Tabby Road Studios in Swinderby.

The Voice UK is a music show in which features a panel of four celebrity coaches from the music industry listen to contestants’ voices — without being able to see them — known as blind auditions.

If they like the sound of the individual or duo, in order to see the contestant they hit a buzzer causing their chair to spin around. If no judge turns, the contestant is out.

The winner receives a record deal with Universal Republic.

Anyone over 16 (by June 23) and either solo artists or duos with genuinely good singing voices are invited to meet the team. The celebrity coaches will not be present on May 12.

Tabby Road Studios is a recording studio owned by Phil and Jane Aldridge.

Sound engineer Phil has a number of years experience in the music industry, helping turn musical talents into professional sounding recordings.

The BBC called them recently to ask permission to use their recording studio for their search for singers in the local area.

Jane said: “It’s an honor to have been asked to help with The Voice UK- it’s not every day you get a phone call from the BBC!

“We are really looking forward to hearing what undiscovered talents come forward, and would urge any singers in the area to get in touch with us to find out more information about coming along to the studio on May 12.”

To apply for the main auditions of the show go to, the official The Voice UK BBC page before midnight on May 30 for a chance.
