Music teachers vie for top talent spot at London's O2 Arena

First published in News

Two Oxfordshire music teachers are playing London’s 02 area tonight in the final of one of the UK’s biggest talent contests.

Called The Lost Art, Greg Hooper, 27 of Oxford, and Gordo Francis, 29, of Bicester, formed their band seven months ago.

The pair sailed through three heats and saw off more than 10,000 contestants to book their place in the Open Mic UK national final.

They will face 60 other acts at the 02 in front of a judging panel that includes Radio 1 DJ Annie Nightingale.
