West End star Hannah Waddingham (Spamalot, A Little Night Music) will host the event and will also be performing with last year's winner Michael Peavoy.

The judging panel includes music journalist for The Independent Edward Seckerson, Musical Director and Arranger Martin Koch and top musical casting director David Grindrod.

There is a prize for best performer and best new song. Prizes will be presented by Julia McKenzie, George Stiles & Anthony Drewe (the composer/lyricist team behind the Olivier Award winning Honk!, Mary Poppins and West End bound Betty Blue Eyes).
