We should not be surprised two young Burnley entertainers have reached the live semi finals of “Britain’s Got Talent”.
For our town has been blessed with a thriving arts and entertainments scene at all age group levels.
Burnley is undoubtedly better known for its footballing prowess, but our reputation for producing showbusiness stars of the future is rapidly growing.
Both Andrew Derbyshire and Steph Morville learned their entertainment trade with the Basics Junior Theatre group in Burnley. And anybody who has seen one of their shows will not be surprised by the duo’s success.
