Milton Keynes’ very own Bailey McConnell and star of Britain’s Got Talent is paying a visit to Midsummer Place Shopping Centre this weekend.
The fifteen-year-old singer-songwriter from Crownhill is a well known face around the city after appearing on ITV’s talent show last month and plans to visit Midsummer Place for a meet and greet to give his fans a chance to see him in person.
Having wowed judges Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams with his original song and unique voice, Bailey is waiting to find out if he’s through to the live semi-final stage of the competition.
Bailey, who used to be a delivery boy for MK Citizen, said: “It’s great to have the support of Midsummer Place; I love loads of the shops in the Centre and they helped me get some new clothes for my big audition.
“Performing on Britain’s Got Talent was really exciting; I just hope I get through to the next round!
“I can’t wait to meet fans on Saturday; they’ve shown me so much support, especially on social media.”
To show support for Bailey in the competition, Midsummer Place is giving away limited edition #TeamBailey wristbands to fans that attend.
Martin Hindson, general manager, said Bailey last performed at the shopping centre in ‘Live @ Midsummer’ in 2013 and they are continuing to support the upandcoming popstar.
“We’re very proud of the local talent that Milton Keynes has and Bailey is a shining example of this.
“We wish him lots of luck in Britain’s Got Talent and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him! We’re ‘Team Bailey’ all the way!”
Bailey will be at Midsummer Place, on the Boulevard, from 12pm to 2pm on Saturday, May 17.
