A TALENT contest has seen gifted Comet country residents battle it out in auditions for a spot in a charity concert later this month.
Twenty-eight acts wowed the judges for Stevenage Has Got Talent in auditions held in the Ellen Terry Suite at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre.
People sang, danced and played musical instruments in a bid to win a place to perform at the Mayor's Charity Concert, which will be held at The Gordon Craig Theatre on Thursday, February 25.
The judging panel - the town's mayor Sue Myson, her consort Dave Myson, Stevenage Music Centre's Lynsey Nott, and MBDA's Alan Fuller - eventually picked six winning acts. They are singer Jess Tasker, Camps Hill Stars Cheerleaders, singer Sharon Curtis, dancers Bethany Huckle and Jody Charles, singer Alex Mileusnic, and singer Michael Humphries who uses a puppet as part of his act.
The concert will raise money for the mayor's Stevenage-based charities, which are Douglas Drive Senior Citizens Centre, Leisure Direct (which provides leisure activities for adults with learning disabilities), Libra Support Group (which supports seriously ill children and their families) and Stevenage Community Trust (which raises funds to enhance the quality of life of people living in Stevenage and its surrounding villages).
To book tickets for the event, which starts at 7pm, visit www.gordon-craig.co.uk or call the box office on 08700 131 030. All tickets are �5.
