Over £1000,00 raised
The Mayor of Brighton and Hove, Councillor Bill Randall and the Mayoress Mrs Heather Randall attended the final of ‘The Lido’s Got Talent’ competition held in Saltdean Lido this week. The finalists, aged 9-17 years old, staged a two and a half hour show which raised over £1000,00 for ‘Children in Need’, and several hundred pounds more for local children’s’ charities.
Quality and variety
The quality and variety on the show, featuring singers, songwriters, dancers, musicians, rap artists and street dancers was much appreciated by the packed audience in the hall. The judging was performed by a panel of experienced professionals, who clearly had a very difficult job in making a decision on the winners. Eventually the grand prize went to the eighteen piece modern choir from the Woodingdean based ‘Brighton School of Singing’. Second place went to fourteen year old street dancer Callum Saunders from Saltdean, with singer Mia Williams-Watson being placed third.
