The X Factor Live Final 2012 will take place in Manchester at Manchester Central. It’s the first time in the show’s history that the Final has moved out of London and it is set to be one of the most thrilling entertainment events of the year.
In its second year as The X Factor Live Final sponsor (and 4th year as The X Factor sponsor), TalkTalk will be giving customers 10,000 tickets to the Live Final weekend via its Facebook page www.facebook.com/talktalkxfactor
ITV, FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME) and Syco will work closely with TalkTalk to activate all on and off-air aspects of this series’ sponsorship campaign.
X Factor Judge, Louis Walsh says: “Our Live Final is going to be another major event – so The X Factor 2012 has everything! I believe it’s going to be our best series yet.”
Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director of TalkTalk says: “We can’t wait to take The X Factor Live Finals to Manchester for the first time. This year we helped to create the mobile auditions which recruited talent from all over the country and we’re delighted that 10,000 of our customers will have the chance to join us at the finals in Manchester.”

From opening its doors as a railway station in 1880, Manchester Central has undergone massive transformation to become a state-of-the-art venue that plays host to world-leading events.
