No less than three finalists from Britain’s Got Talent’s decade of entertainment will be taking part in a stunning charity event in Eastbourne this autumn.
The Big Charity Concert is back for a fourth year to raise funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. This year’s event boosts three popular and successful GBT contestants as part of the exciting line up and is headed up by one of them - local entertainer and comedian Steve Hewlett who will be wowing the audience with his much loved puppets including Arthur Lager. Since Steve’s appearance in the final of Britain’s Got Talent he has been in constant demand touring the country on a regular basis.
Steve will be supported by another BGT finalist soprano Faryl Smith who has released three successful albums, sung at Cup Finals, made numerous concert appearances and duetted with the world famous tenor Jose Carreras.
From this year’s BGT final there is 14 year old Jasmine Elcock who possesses a beautiful singing voice and won over the judges and crowd with her wide smile - she was the golden buzzer act for Ant and Dec who showed enormous belief in her talent. She sang an amazing version of Birdy’s Wings and received a standing ovation as she finished performing the track. David Walliams said it felt like he was listening to someone who was already a star, and Amanda Holden called the performance “amazing”.
Classical Reflection and Iesher Haughton have appeared on BBC 1’s The Voice, the latter reaching the knockout stages. Also featuring will be Ocklynge School Choir, Bourne Chorus and Shining Stars Dance Academy. Tickets £18 and £16 with £2 concs at www.royalhippodrome.com or call 01323 802020.
