Hersham’s Got Talent 2016!

Following on from last year’s success, the Hersham Got Talent Show is being held again this year at St. Peter’s Church.

Last year’s show was a fun-filled, feel-good evening of entertainment by those who live or are connected with Hersham. The performers had the audience wowed and in awe. We had some talented singing voices in a range of styles from the Beatles to opera. Some young performers had aspirations to enter Britain’s Got Talent one day and this was a wonderful opportunity to show their talents in front of a supportive audience. The dancers, one as young as 4 years old, were mesmerising, performing ballet to contemporary dance. A toddler joined his mother for a display of Pathak yoga.

A 13-year-old gymnast transfixed us with her incredible positions and won the junior award. We definitely have some of the bendiest people living in Hersham! The joint-adult winners’ award went to a soon-to-be married couple. The lady overcame nerves to sing the song she would perform at her wedding to a highly gifted musician, who had us all joining in with his rendition of “The Streets of London” as he strummed on his guitar.

Hosted by the elegant 17-year-old Melanie, whose idea this was to bring the community of Hersham together to raise money for charity. These were Cancer Research UK through the Hersham/Walton-on-Thames committee, Born Too Soon, Hersham Youth Trust, and St. Peter’s Church. Melanie was supported by the talented Michael, and they both inspired the audience with their encouraging comments to the brave performers. Ending the evening was St. Peter’s SPARKS – children’s acting group – who delighted us with their musical theatre talents.

We look forward to seeing the talent that emerges this year. Could this be you?
