Puppet Partnership Wins Over Judges At House Talent Show

The audience were wowed from the off at this year’s House Talent Show on Friday 18 November. Not only did the evening’s genuinely side-splitting entertainment provide the platform to showcase some superb acts of a wide variety, the generous crowd also helped raise over £700 towards this year’s House Charity, Warwickshire Young Carers.

Firstly, we extend a HUGE thank you to all of the acts and technical teams who took part in the House Talent Show last Friday. Special thanks also goes to our judging panel for the evening - Deb Bignall (Chief Executive of Warwickshire Young Carers), Rory Pickin (Old Princthorpian and former music prefect) and Ben Pinto (current music prefect) who had the nearly impossible task of picking the overall winners.

One of the evening’s firm favourites and a definite crowd pleaser was Year 7 trumpet player, Ben Murray and his unlikely collaboration with the First XV Rugby Team. Not to mention the fantastically choreographed dance medley from the House Captains to name but a few!

As with every year, the talent is high and the competition is tough but there can only be three winners (or five, in this instance!). In third place for Fisher house was Charlotte Khan and James Tolcher’s beautiful performance of ‘A Thousand Words’. Unable to separate them, second place went jointly to Joes Rees (Austin) talented original singer songwriter, Jack Bromage-Eccles’ (Austin) charismatic song and tap dance performance and Josh Tidd’s (Fisher) quirky beat box of ‘The Drum Kit’. Finally, the top place went to Year 7 ventriloquist extraordinaire Roualyen Alford (Fisher) and his mischievous pal Earnest. Hugely entertaining, incredibly skilful and extremely brave to pick on the Headmaster, Roualyen had the crowd in stiches and was a worthy winner.

A great evening had by all - many congratulations to everyone involved! For more information about Warwickshire Young Carers, please visit: http://www.warwickshireyoungcarers.org.uk/
