Pinchbeck shows it has talent

A regular column from Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn.

Has Pinchbeck got talent? It certainly has, and in early April Pinchbeck held its annual talent show. 

It was a very entertaining evening and featured top performances from local residents and groups.  Pinchbeck Brownies, Guides, Pinchbeck School Choir, Pinchbeck Tappers, poets and musicians all took part and created a great evening. The hall was packed and the committee worked very hard to make the event memorable including a great raffle, hotdogs and Lincolnshire sausages cooked by the committee.

The carnival ‘royalty’ were chosen from a wonderful group of hopefuls – it was one of the hardest to judge this year. The judges, Tulip Queen Ella Holbrook, local musician Peter Graper, and Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn and Chris Carter all deliberated longer than ever before due to the talent who arrived to become crowned Queen and Princess for Pinchbeck.

The new Queen is Annie Kinsella, the older Princess is Teigan Burrill and their younger Princess is Katelyn Brocklehurst. You can see all three girls at Pinchbeck Carnival on June 11.

Many thanks to Coun Sally Slade and Pinchbeck Carnival Committee for organising the event, Jeff Woods for compering it, the different acts, the judges, the girls who entered the competition and of course the audience for supporting the event.

The countdown to Pinchbeck Carnival has now officially started and preparations are under way for another great event. The carnival theme is ‘90 glorious years’ and it looks like it will be the best one yet, and certainly one not to miss.

Tulip Radio and Pinchbeck Carnival Committee would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Queen Elizabeth 11. Pictures from the event will be on the website www.tulip-radio.co.uk
