Amesbury's Got Talent

Heats 1-5 will take place over the lunchtimes next week with the grand finale the week after. Dates for each item will be shared with children once finalised. This is a fun and casual event for those who have already registered, so they can perform to an audience. Please note, registrations are now closed.

Children will need to be responsible for providing their own equipment and music. Music could be via usb stick or a Youtube link, sent to us, that can then be played through one laptop through the PA system. There will be access to keyboards, drums and the PA/speaker system.

Anyone is welcome to come and watch over the lunch break, although please be aware, as this is a fun and casual event, it won't be a polished show. Good luck with your practicing.

Any questions can be sent to [email protected]

Flu outbreak

Please see the attached flyer regarding a flu outbreak in the greater Wellington region.
