MK1 ready for Night on Town
X Factor and Britain's Got Talent stars will be supported by mid-Somerset musicians at the Night on the Town in Wells.
Singer Hayley Ann James comes from Walton, with a degree in music and drama from Bath Spa University.
"My passion is classical music," said the 22-year-old.
"I have performed in Bath Abbey, Bath Guildhall, Bath Theatre Royal, Wells Cathedral and numerous performances at Strode Theatre in Street and I am involved with local charity Afghan Heroes through the Somerset Retreat at Ashcott."
Earlier Hayley went to Strode College and in 2008 won the 21 and under section in the Ian Ritchie Talent Competition at Strode Theatre.
Headline act at this year's Night on the Town on Thursday, September 12 is MK1, a duo who featured on last year's X Factor.
With more than 130 gigs under their belt since leaving the show the band's fan base is constantly increasing and they have an album due out at the end of the year.
Also on the Night on the Town bill are Misunderstood, a new UK pop/R&B duo.
Stephan Benson, aged 18, and Jeffrey Okyere, aged 19, are graduates of the BRIT School of Performing Arts, who met as a part of dance troupe Myztikal, semi-finalists of Britain's Got Talent and later X Factor.
In 2012 Misunderstood were opening acts for US R&B legends Boyz II Men at the 02 in London.
Also performing on the main stage will be the Musical Theatre Group from Wells Blue School and musicians from Wells Cathedral School.
Former Doctor Who, Colin Baker will also be making an appearance.
