Talent on show as W Factor returns to Wendell Park

Wendell Park W Factor 2012 winnersFrom singers to dancers, rappers to magicians, musical groups to solo stars, the annual talent competition at a Shepherds Bush primary school tries to unearth the celebrities of tomorrow. Supported by Finlay Brewer this year’s event on Friday 18th March aims to be bigger and better than ever as the W Factor contest at Wendell Park Primary School marks its 10th anniversary. On the Friday evening, 11 stage acts will compete for the W Factor title in front of a capacity 150-strong audience in the school hall in Cobbold Road. 30 children will be involved, aged between six and 11, overcoming stage fright to impress a panel of judges, just like on the ITV show. On the judging panel this year Joshua Francois, owner and creative director of Arch 197 Dance Studio, the only street dance studio in west London. He’s joined by Fiona Putman, actor and co-founder of London-based youth theatre company Infinite Jest, whose passion is making Shakespeare accessible to young people; and Year 3 teacher and head of English at Wendell Park School, Nick Morgan.
