June saw weeks of hard work and practice pay off as Orchard Manor‘s very own talent show took place in the hall in front of a live audience. Twenty-two residents took part, some on their own and others in groups and pairs, performing a wide range of talents: including singing, stand-up comedy and storytelling.
The winners were voted for by the audience as they cheered, waved their arms and shook instruments to show their support for their favourite acts.
In joint third place came:
Rahil Kunwar: Playing DJ sounds and chimes to Skrillex – Bangarang
Orchard Daydreams: Performing Gary Jules – Mad World (Lewis Brooks on Eye Gaze/Vocals; Becky Parkin on Keyboard/Violin and Jake Thorley on Chimes)
In second place came:
Georgie Archer and Elizabeth Chung: Singing and sharing with a microphone to Spice Girls – 2 Become 1
And, last but not least, in first place came:
Thomas Elvin: Reading ‘What Time Is It, Mr. Wolf?’
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and helped to make the whole day a success; it was enjoyed by both performers and audience.
