Siblings from Scunthorpe competing to be the next Class Act in talent contest
THEY might be called Acquiesce, but our first entrants for this year's Class Act talent show are in no mood for submission.
In fact, the four teenagers from the town's Brumby Engineering College will come out with guitars blazing when the show, run by the Telegraph, starts at the nearby Redbourn Social Club on Thursday, April 25.
The quartet of 14-year-olds Joe Brown, Josh Hardy, Eric Eddy and George Burkill, 15, have chosen to perform their version of a rock anthem for their debut in the 10th annual Class Act.
Joe, Josh, Eric and George have vowed to make the venue shake when they perform Sweet Child of Mine by Guns n' Roses.

The band told What's On: "Our tribute to our rock heroes will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of the song. A year later, it went into the UK top 10 and since then has sold millions worldwide."
The four teenagers have also explained the origin of their stage name.
They said: "It's nothing to do with being submissive. Our name is taken is from another of our favourite songs, Acquiesce by Oasis. It was recorded in 1995 as the B side to Some Might Say."
Eric is on course to make history in this year's Class Act semi-finals on April 25 and Thursday, May 9.
He will be competing against his elder sister, Amelia Eddy 15 – a first-ever for the event.
As the second Brumby College act, Amelia will team up with 15-year-old classmate Tasmin Nightingale to perform their version of Jar of Hearts, a 2010 smash hit for American singer-writer Christina Perri.
The grand final of our talent contest will be held on Thursday, May 30, when the winning act stands to share £1,000 cash with their school or college.
This year's sponsors include Can Pack UK and United Health and a third is due to be announced soon.
