There is nothing we enjoy more than a trip to Warwick Castle. It has the perfect mix of history and entertainment. Since 2012 Horrible Histories® characters have been entertaining visitors to Warwick Castle. This year Warwick Castle will be home to the first ever stage show, ‘Wicked Warwick’, to be specially scripted for Warwick Castle and brought to life in partnership with The Birmingham Stage Company.
To celebrate this the Warwick Castle team are inviting members of the public to join the family fun with the chance to win a one-time cameo in ‘Wicked Warwick’ by auditioning for ‘The W Factor at Warwick Castle.’
Individuals, families and groups are encouraged to come along on the morning of Wednesday 27 May and present their favourite short gory stories on stage to a panel of three judges. Its a brilliant fun day out for everyone.
Entering is easy, free of charge and registrants will receive a 2-4-1 voucher for entry to the Castle on the day. Eager entrants need simply visit the Warwick Castle website to register their intention to audition live for a panel of judges at ‘The W Factor at Warwick Castle’ on Wednesday 27 May.
If you want to stand out from the crowd you can also post your auditions on the Warwick Castle Facebook Page with the tag #thewfactor and receive priority placement in the audition queue. Last minute entries may be accommodated on 27 May depending on time available.
My children are up for the challenge and let us film their auditions:
Not very gory, but they will be saving that for the day!
You can see more entries on Twitter #thewfactor.
The judging panel will select four entrants to perform in live shows at Warwick Castle the following month, on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 June. One overall winner will also receive a unique starlit woodland family sleepover in the Mediaeval Glamping Village on 21 June, only 5 minutes from the Castle and located in a beautiful woodland glade.
