Students with stars in their eyes

TALENTED young people from across the county will get their night in the spotlight at Morpeth’s high school.

Northumberland Youth Cabinet members asked students who can sing, dance or play a musical instrument to put their names forward to take part in a charity ‘stars in their eyes’ talent competition.

The chosen performers will be judged by a selected panel to win money prizes of £250, £100 and £50.

The proceeds of the ticket sales will be donated to Centrepoint, a charity which helps homeless young people and operates across the country.

It works directly with young people to help them to turn their lives around and develop their potential.

County Council Executive Member for Children and Young People Lesley Rickerby said: “I know that there are a lot of talented young people within Northumberland and I am looking forward to seeing some of this talent on the night.

“The cabinet members have particularly selected Centrepoint as the charity which they would most like to support because of the extensive services on offer to young people requiring help.”

The event at King Edward VI School will take place on Friday, February 11 from 6.30pm to 9pm.

Tickets priced at £4 each are sold on a first come, first served basis and are available by contacting Luke Bramhall on 07876 392151.
