I'm trying to figure out why I'm getting a hotspot in the centre of the image when my hot shoe-mounted flash is actually being bounced off the ceiling...The flash is a Sunpak PZ42x

why you have used flash here? i think there is enough light to capture without flash. if you have done this mistake then you could have corrected it by turning off your flash. for this kind of shot i think ISO 200 is enough but if you select any high figure than that to give a faster shutter speed then you should not use above 400 ISO to reduce digital noise.
if you are experimenting the use of flash then i think you could have used a soft light by an external flash from a different angle to reduce the effect of reflection.
Are you sure that is your flashgun causing the hotspot. There appears to be a hotspot over to the left as well. It looks like it could be the stage lighting reflecting on the background and board. Would have been interesting to see if the effect was still there in a shot where you did not fire your flash.
