The fourth annual talent show was held at University Academy Holbeach, and it showed just how talented the students are.

The three judges, Rebecca Daws, Gill Graper and Gareth Holmes enjoyed many performances, including trampoline tricks by trampolinist Olivia Casey, magic by Ewan McCraken and expressive dance by Beth Colley.

But, when it came to choosing a winner, year 11 singer Hollie Beardsmoore-Cooke, who writes her own songs, came in top, winning £100.

In second place was Shark Sandwich, a duo made up of Sean Rummage on drums and Jared Brighton on guitar.

In third place, came singer Leomi Ward and in fourth was singer Stephanie Fortune.

There was also a raffle, which was conducted by former student Russell Kirk, who dressed up as Santa for the occasion.

The show was a true community event, with Team Strides of Holbeach sponsoring the show and producing the trophies.

Laddies from Holbeach were also on hand to sell homemade ice cream and popcorn along with hot chocolate to family, friends, staff and pupils.

Year 11 student Tyler Daniels helped organise and record auditions as well as the show on the night.

Eva Keyes who, along with Mark Murfet, organised the talent show said: “I would like to thank Steve Baragawanath and the staff at the University Academy Holbeach for their support and the caretakers who are always helpful and give up their time for this event.

“I’d also like to thank the library staff Jane Reid and Rachel Sandison who sold the tickets and Monique Dee and Victoria White for all of their help on the night and in rehearsals and Russell who helps out every year and we really appreciate it.”
