Businesses urged to get on board before their rivals

Peterborough’s businesses are being offered the chance to join in with the biggest phenomenon of the 21st century, but with it comes a warning - stake your claim before your rivals snap up all the available opportunities!

Only those people out of the country will have failed to notice the phenomenal success of TV shows ‘Pop Stars’ and ‘Pop Idols’.

The group created by the ‘Pop Stars’ series, Hear’Say set a new record for fastest sales for a debut single when they sold 549,823 copies in the first week.

‘Pop Idols’ winner Will Young shattered that with 1,108,269 sales of his single Evergeen/Anything is Possible in a week.

The ‘Pop Stars’ dream is alive and well and living in Peterborough, where young hopefuls are being given their own chance at making it into the big time.

Star Studios, at the Towermead Business Centre in Fletton run monthly competitions to find Peterborough’s own Popstar. The winners will get their own song written for them, lessons from a professional voice coach and a professional studio to produce it.

Twenty thousand copies of a CD will be made, and the organisers are expecting massive TV, radio and press coverage.

Star Studios’ spokesman Gary Lorimer said: "We’re giving local companies the chance to get on board with this phenomenon.

"The CDs, our videos and even the studios here are available for sponsorship.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to become part of what we firmly believe will be a resounding success.

"We’re expecting a lot of interest, though, so we’re urging companies that want an ideal vehicle to carry their name to talk to us quickly, before somebody else gets there first."

Star Studios’ complex opened last year amidst a huge amount of media interest.

As well as their professional studio facilities, the complex has a 2500 square foot area for fun and activities, used by the Popstar Out of School Club.

Schools, youth workers and parents are frequent users of the place.
