Gypsy Travellers Got Talent

I am putting together a Gypsy and Traveller singing competition for best male and female singer 2016.

I am putting the competition together so people from my community can be given the chance to showcase their talents.

Going back many years music has always been our entertainment and this is where the younger generation has inherited from.

Unfortunately we haven’t been given the chance to showcase our talents as the prejudice we receive puts a block on being accepted and then barriers are in our way, and this is very disheartening for a lot of people from my community because all we want to have is a “chance” and the “opportunity” like anyone else, to do what we love doing and that’s singing.

I have opened a Facebook group that has attracted over 2000 members within a month of opening. When I announced I was doing a singing competition so many Gypsy and Travellers from all over the country have contacted me and said this is such a good thing to do because it would give them the ones who like to sing and preform on stage the chance to shine.
