It's the Far North's time to shine, with a popular talent show making a come back.

After a 6 year hiatus, Far North's Got Talent will literally provide a stage for budding entertainers to strut their stuff.

The event, which is supported by the NZ Music Commission, will have several audition rounds with coaching and help from mentors, with finalist selected to compete in the grand final in Kaitaia in June.

One of the organisers, Boycie Tawhara is hoping it will be a confidence boost for young locals in particular.

If you reckon you've got talent and want to get involved all the details are on the events Facebook page "Far North's Got Talent."
