The group, called ‘PR5’, are made up of 14-year-old rockers Jude, Harry, Bobby, and Rohan.

The group are planning to use the £500 prize fund from winning Gateway’s Got Talent to fund their first few record releases, which are set to be recorded in the next two to three months.

The band’s general manager, Catherine Hodgson, told The Post: “It’s given them a chance to do something they might not have been able to do otherwise.”

The first single is set to be ‘Brace Yourself’, a original song written by the band which has gone down well locally.

Plans are to have a single launch party with Gateway’s Got Talent organisers Gateway Central and Community Gateway, who have offices at Harbour House, located at Preston Docks.

PR5 are also set to play at Preston Pulse on the Flag Market, Sunday September 24.
