Pinchbeck’s Got Talent was a huge success on Friday.
The show provided an audience with top class entertainment from group acts like Brownies, Guides and Pinchbeck School Choir, as well as several individual acts: singers, tap dancers, poets and musicians. The acts were all mainly local.
It was also the chance to crown this year’s Carnival Queen and Princesses.
Pinchbeck’s Got Talent used to be the main fund-raiser for the summer carnival on June 13 – but the new-style event is not a contest, simply an evening of entertainment.
Event organiser Sally Slade first came up with the idea of the talent show and organised it with the help of the Carnival Committee. She said: “The event was really well received, and it was actually a sell-out.”
Carnival ‘royalty’ was chosen on the night by the judges – a past Tulip Queen and Princess, local musician Peter Graper and Jan Whitbourn from Tulip FM.
The Queen is Chloe Young and the Princesses are Elizabeth Neal and Melissa Wales.
