Up and coming musical acts gathered at Burnham-On-Sea’s Princess Theatre on Saturday night (June 10th) to compete before a panel of judges at the third annual Talent Showcase competition.

After an evening of diverse and talented performances, local band Drop The Mic, pictured above, were awarded the grand prize of a professional photo shoot and sets at local festivals.

“Huge thanks go to our judges – pictured right – who were Joanne Schofield from Jelli Records, Oliver Hulme from Farmfest and Sally Edwards from BOSfest.”

Co-organiser Rebecca Strickland added: “The audience really enjoyed it. There was a really great atmosphere throughout the night. And it all helped to raise money for Somewhere House Somerset.”

The charity, based in Burnham-On-Sea, helps people to access counselling. They also work with local schools to help people better understand issues around mental health and addiction.

“We also couldn’t have done the evening without the support of The Princess volunteers,” Lewis said.

Citrus Fox were among the up-and-coming groups from across the Burnham-On-Sea area taking part in Saturday's contest.
