X Factor 2014 audition dates: Mobile try out locations revealed


Dates for the X Factor 2014 mobile auditions have been revealed, starting today in three locations across the UK.

The new way of trying out for the show was first used in last year’s series, with help from sponsors TalkTalk.

Similar auditions were held for Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year at Morrisons stores.

The Mobile Auditions will travel the UK over the next few weeks, allowing budding artists to try out in locations where the arena auditions tour doesn’t reach.

The most glamorous caravan on telly (we expect) will begin its hunt for talented solo artists and vocal groups in Cork, Belfast and Newquay this month.

Previous winner James Arthur originally tried out when the mobile try outs came to Middlesborough, proof that they do apparently work!

Unless otherwise stated, the auditions are open from 10AM to 3PM, or 4:30PM for those in full time education.
