TALENTED residents wowed the audience at the Stevenage mayor's annual charity concert.
The sell-out success at The Gordon Craig Theatre in the town included performances by more than 100 entertainers, whose talents ranged from singing and dancing to gymnastics and cheerleading.
Blues harmonica player Leslie Mortimer was one of five acts selected to perform through auditions for Stevenage Has Got Talent, which was organised by mayor Mick Patston.
Mr Mortimer stormed the show with renditions of Wooden Heart and other numbers which got the audience singing and dancing.
