Well, we’re almost too excited to speak…but it’s not like us to be quiet for long so [cue: fanfare please], brace yourselves for some BIG news.

Are you sitting down?


Take a deep breath.

You ready?


Here it comes.

In less than three-and-a-bit weeks – yep, that’s fewer than 23 little sleeps – The Famous Building will be hosting the Newcastle auditions for the biggest dance competition in the country.

Not guessed yet? We’ll give you a clue: Ashley Banjo…

Another? Davina McCall…

Got it?



Oh my gosh, there are no words!

Okay, apart from these…

….so, after a bit of showing off vis-à-vis our beloved building and brilliant dancers, the Sky TV folk were suitably wowed with Famous and decided to hold the Newcastle rounds of Got to Dance, right here in our humble abode. That’s right, on March 27th 2014, The Famous Building will be opening its doors to welcome hundreds of hopeful superstars from across the region.

We think we’re perfectly located, you know, being a mere hip-hop, skip or funk from the city centre and less than one minute’s walk from Jesmond Metro. Not only will contestants from far and wide get to audition in some of Newcastle’s coolest studios but our homegrown superstars also get to try out for the show, while feeling right at home.

It’s in its fifth series, the show’s format is a tried-and-tested success. Those making it through the first round are in with a shot of dancing in spectacular, televised arena shows in a bid to land the £250,000 first prize. But don’t worry if your time is limited, you’ll only be required to commit to around four or five days (plus your own rehearsals) between March and August, in order to perform a maximum of three dance routines.  They welcome individuals or groups of dancers, aged 9 or over, dancing any style.

Now, even allowing for our bias, we’ve got a pretty talented bunch here at F4.15 so if you agree, and think you have what it takes, enter online at Or, as always, give us a shout if you want to talk it through.

Similarly, if you need some rehearsal time, or just want to check out your performance space in advance, get in touch with Famous 4.15 on 0191 239 9850 or via the website,
