Stand Up Bingo!

One of the most anticipated moments of the show is the Stand Up Bingo event.  Once again the prize on offer was an ipad 2 and judging by the number of tickets sold by Mr Clitheroe and his helpers,  it was much sought after.

There was huge excitement in the air as hundreds of students stood up clutching their ticket(s) but in no time at all just 19 remained.  They were invited to line up at the front of the stage, were allocated a number and then waited with bated breath.

As tension mounted and fingers and toes were crossed, Miss Worden dug deep into the sack and pulled out  the number ... 7!

Year 7 pupil Eve beamed with delight.  She had bought just one ticket and won herself a fantastic early Christmas present.

We all hope she enjoys her new iPad 2!

Will shares his feelings about performing in the talent show

Gosh that was one of the best experiences of my life! I opened after the break and I was really nervous I can't imagine how the first act was feeling, they must have  been terrified. As I got onto the stage I got a massive cheer which made me feel a bit more confident. Fortunately I managed to forget the nerves and perform a great show. Flashbacks of my primary school performance where I had dropped it several times.

Will is a Talent Show Genius!

Juggling and rolling a set of Flower Sticks (3 sticks some 40 centimetres long)  to the sound of "in the jungle" Will in Year 8 had the audience hooked from the off.  To much laughter and huge admiration, Will performed amongst other tricks, a helicopter, tick tock and finished with a stunning high throw.

The act started with Will starting off slowly rolling the stick he was juggling with his other 2 sticks down, then up. When the music got quicker he got quicker moving on to the spin. Spinning the main stick frantically round in a circle he moved to the normal tossing the object. After all that he then rolled the main stick all the way up his lengthy arms then all the down his legs. With a final flick he kicks the main stick into the are then catches it with his hands. For the finale he tosses the Stick metres into into the air and catches. Through out the act Will didn't drop the stick - which was amazing.

You might wonder about Will's unusual talent.   Well, after performing with the Flower Sticks at his primary school talent show in Year 5, Will really got the bug and now keeps his hand in by practising perhaps once a month.

Next time, Will, we suggest you add some dramatic face paint to top off a terrific act!

Santa Makes An Appearance

Towards the end of the show Santa made a surprise visit.   The crowd was excited! He brought the whole school sweets in his brown big sack. The pupils loved it, as he chucked them into the crowd. Unfortunately he had to leave quite soon, due to the big day around the corner!

Alistair wows the crowd

In front of over 1000 people, Alistair (year 8)  sang an absolutely tremendous rendition of Katy Perry's 'Firework'. With the crowd cheering and clapping along, Alistair stunned everyone with his amazing vocals. He owned the stage, hitting the high notes beautifully. He gained a huge reaction and it was well deserved. Well done Alistair.

Talent Show Act 7

One of the few male singers in the Broughton talent show had the crowd  singing along with him.
Oliver (year 10)  a star in last year's talent show, came back even better this year.

 Things started off slowly  but after at least 30 seconds,  the crowd were in the zone and enjoying the performance.

Halfway throughout his singing, the crowd thought he had finished, but no he carried on, the crowd showed that they loved this act, singing along and clapping throughout acknowledginging his performance with a loud roar.

Inskip Primary Pupils

Pupils from inskip primary came to perform a dance. The crowd was mesmerised. These children are in years 3-6 and performed brilliantly. The routine  was originally devised for a performence at Blackpool Winter Gardens. The theme was "On the Wild Side" and it took about 12 weeks to create.

All of the Hosts at BBEC Talent Show 2012

Students from Year 11 scripted and hosted this year's talent show and did a splendid job. 

Abigail's Amazing Talent

Abigail, Britain's Got Talent auditioner, dazzled the audienece with her beautiful voice. Singing "Someone Like You" by Adele, the audienece was knocked silenct. During half the performance the crowd were brought in to the action waving their arms above themselves to the voice of Abigail. She was postivley glowing with confidence.
Abbie shoud be feeling proud of herself and her great talent.

Laura sings "Green Eyes"

What a fantastic peformance! It's hard enough to sing in front of so many people, but to play guitar as well takes some courage!    It's obvious that Laura is a talented musician and she certainly wowed the festive audience with this performance.  I reckon Laura is in with a chance of winning

Chloe Haley and Ella Aldridge

Two year 8 pupils were 3rd to the stage, Ella 8H and Chloe 8N and they'd been anticipating this moment greatly!

The girls captured the audience's hearts as they sang their cover of Torn, originally sung by Natalie Imbruglia. They sang beautifully and the audience definitely agreed as you couldn't hear a pin drop! Their singing was very professional with Ella accompanying Chloe in a lovely harmony!

Talent show- Crazy Karaoke

Below we see quite a subdued audience just before the first of the Christmas Karaoke numbers got under way! Very soon arms were waving to the music. The presenters bounced around inviting members of the audience sing into the microphone. The noise was incredible! What a great way to waken up an audience.

Act 1- Athena

Athena must be one of the bravest competitors! This is not only her first year here but she was first on. After a massive cheer the crowd grew quiet in anticipation. With the lyrics behind her and the music starting you could have heard a pin drop. The song choice was rather symbolic being called "Skyfall" and people rumoring about the end of the world. After a breath taking performance Athena should feel proud Well Done!

Delivering you the all-new Flying Memo

Since the launch of our official blog from Broughton, there has been little change in the design of The Flying Memo. Today that changes. The Flying Memo 3.0 is here.

3.0 you ask? Yes, there have been two generations of design here on The Flying Memo. The first was very simple and minimalist with traditional style fonts. We then moved to the previous design below:

Today, I am proud to show introduce the design for The Flying Memo 3.0:

Fresh, minimalistic and clear, this design is going back to our roots with the blog's first design.

There's an update to the mobile view of The Flying Memo too. We are delighted with the changes and are sure you will be too. Feedback welcome.
