Britain's Got Talent

The hugely successful, annual ITV1 television show, Britain's Got Talent, generously donates a large proportion of the money raised from viewers' telephone votes to the Entertainment Artistes' Benevolent Fund. The EABF, in return, arranges for the series winner of the show to appear at the annual Royal Variety Performance, which is held in the presence of senior members of the British Royal Family and viewed by over 150 million TV viewers worldwide. The EABF, now often simply known as the 'Royal Variety Charity', is enormously proud to be associated with Britain's Got Talent, and gratefully acknowledges the fantastic help and support of Simon Cowell and all at Syco Television.
