SLIDESHOW: Praise for performers at Rotherham’s Got Talent finals

THE magic of the musicals and the spirit of song inspired young performers at a feast of talent this week.

The Rotherham’s Got Talent finals at the New York Stadium saw 11 acts made up promising singers, musicians, fleet-footed dancers and even a rock band going before the judges.

Guitarist James Hague was declared the winner, scooping a trophy and an iPod, while singer Asher Dugan, from  Anston Greenlands Junior School, finished as runner-up.

There was also a performance of nursery rhymes by children from the Grange Kindergarten.

Rotherham’s Got Talent was part of the children’s festival, which this week also saw the display of a large model of the Bloodhound SSC car — a specially-engineered vehicle aimed at breaking 1,000mph.

Families are encouraged to head along to the stadium on Saturday between 10am and 3pm to take a look at the Bloodhound recreation and have a go at making their own air-powered model car.
