YOUNGSTERS from Blyth schools have taken part in a competition to show the town’s got talent.

The fourth annual Blyth’s Got Talent event gave children an opportunity to demonstrate their artistic skills in front of an audience at The Blyth School Community College.

Morpeth Road, Newsham, Horton Grange, Croftway, Malvins Close primary schools as well as The Blyth School Community College took part in the show.

The acts showcased dance, gymnastics, musical theatre and groups of singers, with two performances from each school.

Year 8 students Chelsea Maddison and Simone Tate compered the show.

And following the performances each act was presented with a trophy by assistant headteacher Andy Clark.

Performing arts teacher Charlotte Mumby said: “I am sure the audience would agree with me that our young people have made us very proud and have given us a night to remember.

“Thanks also go to Jayne Fitzsimmons, who once again has co-ordinated the event so magnificently and to the staff from all the schools who have spent a great deal of time and energy in preparing the children and students for their performances.”
