Performers sang, belly danced and played musical instruments as residents raised the roof in a Market Harborough care home’s very own version of Britain’s Got Talent.
More than 70 revellers, including family members, clapped, cheered and sung along at Peaker Park’s Got Talent on Saturday, June 28.
Spectator and resident Sylvia Sams, 80, who enjoys volunteering as one of the bar tenders at Peaker Park’s ‘early doors’ bar, said: “Some of the songs like We’ll Meet Again bought back a few memories. I really enjoy being here.”
The acts included piano player Charlie Hilton and singer Laura Bent, who came second and third in Harborough’s Got Talent, as well as a host of singers, a belly dancer, violin players and Harborough guitar duo Double Barrel.
The 137-bed home, based in Trojan Place, Rockingham Road, regularly stages events as part of its packed entertainment programme.
Peter Van Herrewege, chairman of PrimeLife, which runs the home, said:
“In the week we are busy getting older but at the weekend we take a day off.
“As well providing high-quality care, we are also firm believers in staging first-class entertainment at Peaker Park.”
