Thame’s Got Talent – a showcase for local talent taking place on Sunday November 20, has seen a variety of acts over the years since its launch in 2009, and has also seen familiar faces taking part year on year, which, claims Yvette Cundy, owner of Kismet Jewellers, Thame, goes a long way towards helping entrants boost their confidence.
Yvette, a local businesswoman and sponsor of the event explains: “We have seen some familiar local faces over the last three years, keep coming back to take part, which is really great for their confidence-building and experience.
It really is a fantastic way to banish those butterflies in the stomach, by getting up on stage to a full house of people, and I would recommend anyone wishing to become a performer, to take part in this fantastic local event.”
More than 20 acts have signed up to the event so far, which will see Thame Air Cadets also offering a helping hand on the day.
Thame’s Got Talent takes place at the Spread Eagle Hotel in aid of the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity, which provides comprehensive care and support for local families affected by life-limiting illness and raised over £2,000 last year.
Acts taking part will battle it out to win some fantastic prizes including a day in a recording studio and a cash prize of £200.
Registration is open and entry forms are available from the Spread Eagle Hotel, Kismet Jewellers of Thame or by visiting www.thamesgottalent.co.uk and downloading a form.
Local companies already lending their support to the event include Crash Records, Orsum Events, Frank Millar Photography, Kismet Jewellers of Thame and Black Frog Studios.
