Australia’s Got Talent but not the B Factor!

Around Bayley

The B Factor made a triumphant return for 2022!

Across Bayley House, there is no other event that can match the excitement of the B Factor. Beginning, many years ago as ‘Bayley Idol’ in the hall at 52 Middle Crescent,  the B Factor has grown into a talent show of great proportions. In the months leading up to the day, many groups across Bayley House were preparing and rehearsing for what would be the biggest B Factor ever – on the stage at Brighton Grammar!

The stage was set on Friday 16 December, the hall at Brighton Grammar was filled with clients, families and special guests from the Bayley House community. MC’s Serena and Renae donned their best high vis outfits and opened the performances for the day. From intricate puppet shows to choreographed dance right through to solo vocal performances – the B Factor had it all.

Three brand new judges were welcomed for 2022:

Sandee who is the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Scheme Business Partner and country music sensation! Rebecca our GM of Finance who plays classical guitar and MC and comedian, Russell.

The B Factor was a welcome return to in person entertainment for Bayley House with excitement levels through the roof. Each performance was amazing and everyone looked the part with great effort and detail in their costumes.

While the aim of the day is to get on stage, give it a go and have fun there are also prizes. Congratulations to all who participated in the biggest ever B Factor!
