COMPETITORS ranging from 11 right up to 77-years-old took part in a hugely enjoyable talent competition at St Mary’s Hall in Mablethorpe on Saturday.

With a wealth of talent on show, the audience were treated to everything from Irish folk rock from Leanne Rumens to Gothic rock from her sister Damia.

Tobie Martin performed a top modern pop remix and Doreen Gardner played some relaxing country music while 14-year-old Emmaleen Wilks gave a breathtaking acapella performance.

Keyboard player Ellam Fax and guitarist Greg Hulks also impressed the show’s judges Paddy and Debbie Prince.

The judges had an extremely difficult task in choosing a winner, but in the end they decided that 13-year-old Rhea Cooper, of Spilsby, deserved the £25 prize thanks to her spine tingling vocal performance.

Glenna Betteridge, honorary secretary of the Sutton Theatre Company and organiser of the competition, said the show proved the wealth of talent in Mablethorpe.
