Lavender's Got (so much) Talent 2014!
The amazing show put on by the finalists in our annual competition proved, yet again, that Lavender certainly does have talent! Fifteen incredible acts wowed the audience with music, singing, comedy, dancing, gymnastics and acting. Well done to everyone who shared their talents! The standard was unbelievably high but after much argument and deliberation the judges crowned 2 acts as runners up and, in an unprecedented move, 3 acts shared the joint first place position!
Joint first prize winners were: Ilayda, our singer/ guitarist; Molly, our singer/ pianist; and Callum and Max, our comedy duo.
Joint runners up were: Kalina and Danny, our Bulgarian dancers; and Vanshi, Jayden and Madison, our singing trio.
Many thanks to everyone who entered, to our special guest performers from Platinum Performing Arts, to the finalists who performed, families who came to support and staff who acted as judges and helpers. Particular thanks must go to Dizzy Russell (aka Mr Russell) and Lady Lala (aka Miss James), our wonderful hosts, and of course Miss Lloyd whose organisation, hard work and dedication make the whole event possible. In the words of Simon Cowell (aka Mr. Kleiner-Mann), “Keeley Lloyd, you are magnificent!”

It was a fantastic event attended by the Mayor and the local press. 18 schools turned up to do battle all day and Lavender came a very respectable fourth place. We would like to congratulate all the players in our team: Thomas, Joseph, Vanshi, David, Madison and Isaac. They had great team spirit and showed all of our core values throughout the day.
