A host of young talent wowed the crowd at the third annual Maidenhead's Got Talent showcase on Friday evening.
The packed show at Taplow Court in Cliveden Road, Taplow, featured more than 200 performers from Stagecoach, Lowbrook Academy, Newlands Girls' School, Claires Court Schools and RedRoofs Theatre School, while Wokingham-based magician Magic Leigh Magic put on a show as part of a varied programme.
The evening featured dance and musical performances based on everything from Vivaldi to the Beatles and a final performance of Our Time from musical Merrily We Roll Along from all involved.
The popular event, which attracted an audience of more than 250 people, is organised by Maidenhead's rotary and rotaract clubs with the sponsorship of the Shanly Foundation and raised about £2,500 for charities supported by the clubs.
Lisa Hunter, president of Maidenhead Bridge Rotary Club, said: "The idea is to try and bring the schools together and to work together. It's a showcase of the wonderful talent we have."
She added hopes were high the show will continue to grow in future.
