A BAND which made the final of America’s Got Talent entertained students at a school last week.
Etonbury Academy in Arlesey played host to the Saline Fiddlers when it officially opened its new theatre.
The group of 40 16-to-19-year-old Christians finished fourth in the American version of the talent show, where they were described as “a model example of America’s youth”. The group play a mix of music, ranging from Celtic to bluegrass and swing.
It was the first opportunity for the school to show off its theatre, which cost £50,000 and was opened by Kirsty Smith, chief executive officer of CBM – formerly the Christian Blind Mission.
Lee Searle, community head of CBM, who arranged the event, said: “A full house at Etonbury helped create a magical atmosphere, with students, parents and teachers dancing the night away, and also raised funds for our charity.”
