Spokesman Jamie Stanley said: “The People’s Choice Polls for this Saturday’s Horsham Battle of the Bands Cover Acts and Original Bands finals have been launched on the competition website

"Primarily sponsored by local firm Woodstock IT, the finals are free entry this year and will take place in the Human Nature Garden, Horsham Park from midday on August 17.

"Fans of the finalists can vote already.

"The polls will close immediately after the final act in each competition so that the audience can have their say as well. The result of the polls will count as a fourth judge, alongside the decisions of the three esteemed judges so they can – and sometimes do – affect the result.

"There will also be circus workshops for kids and adults throughout the day courtesy of The Soapbox Circus, as well as a fully stocked bar and food stalls.”
