Pride talent’s a hit

THE first heat of Calderdale Pride’s talent contest got underway last Saturday, December 3, at B@r Place, Hebden Bridge, with the Mayor of Calderdale, Coun Nader Fekri, opening the evening’s events.

Pride volunteer Vikki Kitson said “It was a huge success which totally exceeded our expectations. Contestants put on a fantastic and fun evening’s entertainment for the crowd, and the audience were really supportive throughout.”

The second heat of Pride’s Got Talent will be held on Saturday, February 25, at B@r Place. Winners from both heats will go through to the grand final in March, with the overall winner bagging themselves a £100 cash prize and the opportunity to perform at Pride 2012.
