Performers sang, belly danced and played instruments as residents raised the roof at a Harborough care home’s very own version of Britain’s Got Talent.

More than 70 people, including family, clapped, cheered and sang along at Peaker Park’s ‘Got Talent’ event on Saturday.

Spectator and resident Sylvia Sams, (80), who is a volunteer bar tender at the home’s Early Doors bar, said: “Some of the songs like We’ll Meet Again bought back a few memories.”

The acts included pianist Charlie Hilton and singer Laura Bent, who came second and third in the Harborough’s Got Talent event earlier this year, as well as a host of singers, a belly dancer, violinists and town guitar duo Double Barrel.

The 137-bed home, off Rockingham Road, often stages events as part of its entertainment programme.

Peter Van Herrewege, chairman of PrimeLife which runs the home, said: “In the week, we are busy getting older but at the weekend we take a day off.

“We are firm believers in staging first-class entertainment.”
