CARL DONNELLY'S NATIONAL NOVELTY DANCE FINALS
Be prepared to be amazed - and possibly appalled – when Carl Donnelly presents the UK’s best novelty dancers live on the Alternative Stage. Back in May, Carl held two open auditions in Leeds and Reading where groups of up to six friends could strut their stuff for a panel of comedy judges including Carl, Paul McCaffrey, Damian Clark and Chris Martin. Finalists were chosen from both auditions, as well as online entries, to win weekend tickets to the festival and the money-can’t-buy opportunity to perform on the Alternative Stage. Now festival-goers can see the very finest novelty dance talent the UK can offer, with the eventual winner picking up a whole host of festival swag including upgraded guest tickets, free food and drink and £500 spending money.
