creating new stages of community
"All Stars means to me there's a safe place for my son to perform, an environment to feel confident and be OK, and to share his talent with everyone else."

Want to show off your skills onstage? Don't worry if you've never done it -- All Stars London Talent Shows are open to everyone!
Our flagship programme, Talent Shows take place in the community, offering local young people aged 5-25 the chance to present acts in a variety of genres (vocal, dance, rap, instrument, poetry and more) before a big, supportive audience. No previous experience is necessary; performances can be solo or in a group. Shows are inclusive and non-competitive: the Talent Show cycle consists of an Audition showing off one-minute of your act. This is followed by an Ensemble-building Workshop for all performers and volunteers, highlighting the importance of getting to know each other onstage and in the community and performing as a team. After the Show, all performers are recognized for their contributions in our Award Ceremony.
The confidence gained by performing onstage is just the beginning of the All Stars journey. We are building even more opportunities for young people to take on leadership roles, helping All Stars London to recruit more acts, as well as working backstage with our stage managers and other volunteers to produce the shows.
Returning performers have the opportunity to sign up for the range of other programmes, workshops and bridge-building trips that we organise throughout the year.
