Our Town's Got Talent

Earlier this year we found proof of what we already knew - our borough is bursting with local talent. Our sofa superstars had their moment in the limelight to bring cheer to all our residents from the comfort of their own homes.

We had over 40 entries who were brave enough to strut their stuff on camera and share on social media, performing everything from dog tricks, to contemporary dance, to belting out ballads.

They all had that resilient lockdown spirit in spades, and showed everyone how staying in was the new going out.

Thank you to everyone who took part, watched the entries and voted!
