Durrington Junior School has talent

Durrington Junior School has hosted its second ‘Durrington’s Got Talent’ night with some amazing performances.

Young people from the school took their turn to perform on the stage in the school hall in front of fellow pupils and parents, as well as a panel of four judges.

The performances featured, singers, musicians, dancers, a comedian and even weightlifters!

The judging panel was made up of Andy Munns from Salisbury Radio, Laura the Amesbury Tesco community champion, Philip, the local vicar, and ex-pupil and soon-to-be star of the stage Alfie Flynn.

The judges had a tough time choosing a winner for the competition, and in the end, they announced the joint winners were Annabel (cheerleading and contortion) and Maci (Singing).

Disco Dion was on hand to compare the evening and provided the sound and lighting for the event. He said, “The level of talent at Durrington Juniors was amazing, and the children should be very proud of their achievements”

This was the second holding of the event, and Andy from Salisbury Radio acted as head judge after he also attended last year. He said, “It was great to be invited back, and the standard this year was so high. Our joint winners were both amazing—as were all those taking part who bravely stood on the stage to showcase their talent.

“It was particularly to see such a variety with the weightlifting a real highlight as it was so different to what you usually see in a talent competition and was compelling to watch.

“Well done to everyone who took part, and I hope I am invited back for the 2025 edition.”

The evening also raised much-needed funds for the school.
