Windsor's much loved Thames Hospice is holding a talent contest for children and young people this summer.

The Thames Got Talent competition will run throughout August and applicants are invited to send video performances of themselves singing, dancing or showing off whatever other talents they have.

The winner will get to perform in front of more than 1,000 people at the hospice's planned LakeFest event next year, celebrating its move from its current home in Hatch Lane, Windsor to new premises by the lake in Reform Road, Maidenhead.

Alison Evans, head of events and community fundraising at the hospice said: “During this pandemic we wanted to provide something fun and different for our community to be part of – Thames Got Talent is an amazing opportunity for people to showcase their talent.”

The best entries will be shortlisted by a judging panel including a team from the Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts and TV personality Sarah Greene. The overall winner will get to perform on the mainstage at Thames Hospice’s LakeFest 2021.

The winner and the runners up will also receive a month’s pass to attend classes and workshops at the Pauline Quirke Academy and a special trophy.

The winners will be announced on Friday, September 25.
