Lockdown may have put many aspects of normal life on hold, but for our musically talented youngsters, the show must go on, as the West Norfolk’s Got Talent competition is being held again in a bid to find the rising stars of tomorrow.
The competition, which is open to all our pupils, aims to celebrate the wealth of talent locally in the worlds of singing, playing and dancing. TV’s Gillian Taylforth (Kathy Beale in Eastenders) and Kim Taylforth (Hollyoaks) are on board to help decide a winner in each category.
The first staging of the competition took place in the summer, and organisers at the West Norfolk Academies Trust, of which we are part of, had been taken aback by the number of entries.
Last year's winners were Ella Chim, of Springwood High and Zoe Burton, Terrington St Clement Community School. Runners-up were Danny Bailey (Heacham Junior School) on instrumental; Ellie Proctor (Heacham Junior School) for dance and Niamh Ward (Wisbech Grammar School) for singing.
