Has Melbury Got Talent?
Raise money for Hillside Animal Sanctuary
www.hillside.org.uk
Panto season has come and one. Unfortunately this year there
were no performances in the Melbury Team from either The
Corscombe and District Players or the Cattistock Players. This
is something, I think you will all agree, that we do not want to lose completely.
The question is:

Has Melbury Got Talent?


Answer: Enter your talent and find out. If you can sing, dance, act, read/write poetry, play a musical instrument or have another talent or would just like to try for the first time, now is your chance in the spotlight.

The evening will be made up of performances that YOU provide,
- however young or old now is the time to enter.

Cash Bar

Please send your entries to M Rendell: email wheres_my_car@hotmail.co.uk or 07796452719 by 17th June 2016. Please give your name, number, E-mail address and the act that
you wish to enter.
