Abstract: We present results of a variability search in the field of the young open cluster NGC1502. We confirm that a β Cephei suspect WEBDA 26 is indeed pulsating with a period of 0.09612 d and semi-amplitude of about 3 mmag in V . A new V IC light curve of the bright eclipsing binary and cluster member SZ Cam was obtained. In addition, we found two new variable stars. One is an interesting eclipsing binary showing total eclipses, which can be used to derive the distance to the cluster once radial velocities of the components will be obtained.
