Welcome to the Grand Final of Rugby’s Got Talent 2022!

Rugby’s Got Talent this year is created by The Rotary Club of Rugby Dunsmore and made possible by the generous sponsorship of Urban & Civic plc, “Come Home to Houlton”.

So, tonight is the Grand Final! And we’d like to welcome Dan Sambell from BBC CWR as our compere for the evening. Thank you Dan for once again being such a fantastic host!

We’d also like to thank YOU, the audience, for your support and enthusiasm throughout this competition. Everyone involved with the show really appreciates this and we hope you’ve enjoyed seeing these new exciting artists perform to the best of their abilities.

This year, the standard has once again been extremely high and everyone who entered is to be applauded for their dedication and hard work to reach the level of their current performance. All 3 of the semi-finals have been outstanding and we’re expecting another fantastic Grand Final.

Now two acts from each semi-final plus two wild cards have been carefully selected by the judges to appear in the Grand Final. But there can only be ONE winner! Who will it be?

Regardless of who wins, we aim to make the experience of being involved with Rugby’s Got Talent a positive one for every contestant. Even if they didn’t make the final, they will have gained invaluable experience and exposure which will benefit them in lots of ways.

Everyone will have the pleasure of seeing many again at the great venues we have in Rugby, and we’d love them to return next year and compete again in Rugby’s Got Talent.


We wish them all well in the future and hope they keep in touch as they progress!
