Hanna Clements 03
Kim Biddulph 01

'Haddenham's Got Talent' returned to the village's Youth & Community Centre on Saturday 7th September. The fundraising show was another glorious evening of fun and entertainment showcasing some of Haddenham's most promising entertainers of all ages. It was organised by Lynne Colley and MC'd by Gary McCarron.

On the bill were:

  • Ms Timberlake*, who sang 'Power of Love' (Frankie Goes to Hollywood; also Gabrielle)
  • Hanna Clements, with a virtuoso performance telling the tale of the frustrations of living in a noisy apartment block, and demonstrating Hanna's huge vocal range
  • Paul Booth who sang and played his own songs, in a unique, self-deprecating style
  • Oli Giles and Vicky Wyatt, who provided a zany singing sketch which concluded in sheer mayhem!
  • Adrian Ripley, with his impressive 'memory man' demonstration
  • Mary Pritchard, who delighted everyone with the skilled recitations of her own poetry
  • Emma Batting, whose rendition of 'Set Fire to the Rain' (Adele) demonstrated her incredible voice
  • Kim Biddulph, who sang a challenging Abba medley
  • 'Wings of Icarus' — a two piece band, with Benedict Quinn and Brewster Mason singing their own compositions.

Every one of the acts deserved a medal for the sheer entertainment value. However, in the spirit of a Talent Show, one winner was decided by audience voting. And the winner was ....
Miss Timberlake* (for the second year running!)

Over £600 was raised by the event, which was held in memory of Hannah Bourke, who held the first Haddenham's Got Talent event to raise money for Path to Africa, a charity dear to her heart and one she visited in Tanzania shortly before died. On this occasion, all proceeds are going to the Epilepsy Society.
