PICTURE GALLERY: Bowthorpe’s Got Talent

Bowthorpe proved it had talent when 14 acts took to the stage on Saturday afternoon.

The contest, organised by the Clover Hill Community Association, included a girl band, dance troupes and singers, battling to be crowned champion of Bowthorpe's Got Talent.

Organiser Paula Browne said: 'It has gone really well. We've had more people here than last year.'

Dance duo Adrianne Rushmer and Courtney Giddings, both aged 15, performed a routine to the song Too Close by Alex Clare.

'We've only practised for a week so it was nerve racking,' said Adrianne, who goes to Ormiston Victory Academy.

Girl band, Inspiration Prima Rose, from Sprowston, also performed after reading about the competition in the newspaper.

The band made up of Sophie Neale, 14, Amy Ford, 14, and sisters Becki, 14, and Georgi Ball, 12, perform mixes of pop songs.
