THE Covid-19 pandemic was not going to stop students from wowing an audience with their singing, magic, comedy and art in their latest school talent show.

The King Alfred School Academy (TKASA) students produced a series of incredible performances in the online event.

The TKASA Talent Show is an annual tradition which is usually held as a performance evening, with a panel of guest judges.

This year it went ahead virtually, with a judging panel of vocal coach and TV presenter Mark Delisser, BBC Radio Somerset presenter Claire Carter, writer and composer Stuart Brayson, West End actors Karl Queensborough and Simon-Anthony Rhoden, and street artist John Doh.

HITTING THE HIGH NOTES: One of the King Alfred singers

Charlotte Biggs, one of the coordinators for the event, said: “We have seen some absolutely incredible talent on show.

“We had so many entries that we had to select a top five and create a Visual Arts category.

“In addition to our students, we have very talented members of staff, and we added a special category ‘Staff Entries’.

“This ranged from a comical magic trick to artwork and a department singalong!”

She added: “I have been so impressed with the level of talent we have here at TKASA - both students and staff.

“We are also very grateful for the time and feedback our judges offered.”
