Talented young rappers are needed to battle for the opportunity to perform at two Olympic celebrations.

Aspiring MCs aged 13 or over have until 22 June to record a two minute rap about Olympic and Paralympic values to be in with a chance of being selected.

The competition is being jointly organised by Surrey County Council and music charity Rhythmix with the support of Eagle Radio.

The winner will be invited to perform at the Woking Party in the Park on 7 July and at the torch relay celebration at Stoke Park in Guildford on 20 July.
