St Joseph’s Got Talent

Calling all our talented young parishioners – after last year’s wonderful display of varied talents by the children of the Parish, we’re going to have another ‘talent fest’ during this year’s end of summer fete. Whatever your talent – comedian, dance, singing, magic, ventriloquism, showcasing your football skills – sign up to perform live on stage.

Performances must be no longer than 2.5 minutes. Everyone will receive a ‘certificate’ for participating. Any music or backing track needs to be pre-recorded (iphone or android can be plugged into sound system). Any equipment (tables, mats etc) need to be brought with you. Sign up sheet in the Porch.

More details will be provided at the end of August.
