Wednesday and Thursday night have found me working with the Katy Holmes Trust, supporting one of their charity fundraising campaigns. I’ve been photographing singers, bands, musicians and dancers who all have two things in common – they’re from Preston and they’ve got talent!!!
Preston’s Got Talent is the name of the charity competition event which the Katy Holmes Trust are running, both to raise the profile of paediatric brain tumours and to fund further research.
Following two heats this week and one more heat in October, the best 15 acts chosen by the Judges will take part in the Grand Final on Friday 25th October. It takes place at Preston Playhouse and the best bit – the winner will get to perform at the Preston Christmas Lights Switch-On, alongside an incredibly talented international singing star. (To book your tickets for the final please ring 01772 490718 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number and ticket request.)
I’m delighted I’m able to support the event. In addition to photographing all of the acts as they perform, I’m also able to supply prints and enlargements of their images with sales proceeds going back to the Katy Holmes Trust. Have a browse through the Heat 1 and Heat 2 images – hope you like them!!!
