Tamworth Talent show proves the town has talent
The Tamworth Teen Talent show (reported last week) proved that the towns youngsters have bags of talent and made for a difficult evening for the judging panel which included Atomic Kitten star, Natasha Hamilton. The judges had the task of deciding which of the ten acts from high schools around the town was best to win the top prize.
The winner on the night was Connor Brooks of Woodhouse School who performed “Mr Sellophane” from the hit musical, Chicago. Connor won theatre tickets and will now perform at the Christmas lights switch on in St Edithas square this year.
Second prize went to Olivia Shaw and Stephanie Stevens of Belgrave High School, they will now perform at the Summer Festival on August 30. Third prize went to Megan Yates of QEMs who will perform at the Tamworth Community event on June 18. The top three from the Tamworth contest will also perform at the South Staffordshire’s Got Talent show later this year.
Farzana Ahmed, ASB Officer said;
“Well done to all of the acts who took part and I hope they enjoyed taking part as much as the audience enjoyed watching them perform. Good luck to all three of the top acts, and let’s hope we have a Tamworth winner for the South Staffordshire’s Got Talent.”
The Tamworth’s Got Talent event was organised by the Community Safety Partnership to get adults and children working together as part of the governments Respect Agenda.
