Have you got what it takes to be Gentoo’s next winner?

Calling all singers, bands, dance acts, choirs, musicians and comedians!

The Genfactor is a talent competition organised by Gentoo. This amazing competition, modelled on Britain’s Got Talent is celebrating its tenth year and it’s set to be bigger and better than ever before. 

If you are between 11-18 years old, live or study in Sunderland and have talent, this could be your big chance to win £500 and shine!

All acts under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and singers need to bring their own backing tracks. Acts will be seen on a first come first served basis.
