TULIPMANIA: Thanks for making the day a success

A wonderful time was had by all at the two-day Tulipmania event.

The entertainment started off with the wonderful Wototo Choir. Bourne Karts showed us throughout the day on Saturday how we could get involved in joining their club.

Major Dennis Hannant gave us so much pleasure with his beautiful voice and Eden Parish, Kate Harwood and Emily Miller entertained us with their winning songs from Moulton’s Got Talent.

The Prince and Princess winners were Joseph Porter and Georgie Van Dyke and all 15 hopefuls looked amazing in their tulip-themed outfits.

CJ Hatt and Ethan and Olly were three more soloists who entertained us all and

Diamondz Dance, as always, gave us another amazing performance.

Flammable Street Dance performed to some wonderful music and the Marching Ambassadors, all looking smart in their uniforms and leading the procession around the arena, were great.

The procession was made up of organisations who had been part of the performances during the day and led by Adrian Jansen who had been the parade marshall for many years.

On Sunday many of the performances started all over again and the Peterborough Highland Pipe Band played throughout the day.

Megan McPartlin once again sang to the crowds and showed us her skills as a young singer/song writer.

Hundreds of classic cars entertained and David Norton and his team worked hard all weekend making sure everything was in place.

It is always the unsung heroes who don’t get a mention. Robin Chappell died tragically last week and he was remembered on many occasions and a wonderful tribute was made by dedicating this first Tulipmania event to him.

Thank you Mark Feauneaux from Human Touch Ambulance Service and Trevor Wain for looking after the First Aid, also to the Tulip Radio team for working so hard.

Thank you to everyone who helped me to make our part a success and also to the Royal Navy Association for theirsupport.
