DANCE duo Signature, who wowed judges on Britain's Got Talent, are to perform in Barnstaple.

They will appear at a celebration evening organised by Petroc, formerly known as North Devon College.

The dance artists secured the runners up position on the 2008 series of the TV talent show.

They will join a host of performers at the college to celebrate international diversity.

Since their success the dancers, who perform a unique mix of bhangra, hip hop and Michael Jackson inspired moves, have performed in more than 200 shows across the world.

The aim of the evening, to which anyone is welcome, is to enable students, staff and guests to engage with different cultures from all corners of the globe.

Petroc principal David Dodd, said: "This will be a fantastic evening. It provides a diverse range of fun, interactive learning opportunities designed to ignite a passion for learning in all."

As well as Signature, there will be a performance from opera singer Alison Kettlewell, who has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Graffiti artist, Mau Mau, will also present live demonstrations and workshops for budding artists.

Talks will be delivered by the Biosphere UK chairman and a member of UNESCO, as well as inspirational Polar explorer, Anthony Jinson.

The college will commemorate the jam-packed evening by serving cuisine from two of the world's most loved food nations — Italy and India.

French chefs from Bideford will also run a crêpe bar at the event.

The evening, on Wednesday October 21, will take place between 6pm and 9.30pm at Petroc's Barnstaple campus on Old Sticklepath Hill.

The event will also be the launch of the International Baccalaureate Diploma which will be offered at Petroc from 2010.
