Capita Symonds Supports Valleys 'V Factor'

4 August 2010

The finals of ‘The V Factor’ competition - a talent showcase for young  people across Rhondda Cynon Taff in South Wales - have taken place.

Organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and supported by Capita Symonds’ Glamorgan partnership, the competition was open to young people across the Local Authority and comprised four categories - Best Music Act, Best Dance Act, Best Musical Theatre Act and Best Drama Act.

Over 600 potential stars of the future took part in the event.

Capita Symonds supported the event by sponsoring masterclasses for the finalists which were given by Amy Wadge (singer/songwriter), Siwan Morris (actress), Richard Mylan (actor/musical theatre), and Kate Lewis (dance). Capita Symonds Directors Liane Sheppard, Ian Germain and Ian Walsh attended the masterclasses which helped the budding stars fine tune their performances in time for the finals.

The winners will perform at a regional concert this month and then at the “In Tune With Youth” showcase at the Wales Millennium Centre in October. They will also become Rhondda Cynon Taf ambassadors for youth arts.
