Newslink - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - JENNY CAMP­BELL

Va­ri­ety is the fo­cus for a fun event at Lums­den on Thurs­day night.

Per­form­ers will be singing, dancing and play­ing in­stru­ments at a Va­ri­ety Con­cert at the Lums­den Me­mo­rial Hall, with a spe­cial per­for­mance from a newly formed band from North­ern South­land Col­lege, or­gan­iser Jeanna Rodgers said.

‘‘The idea came from new NSC prin­ci­pal Mike Newell, deputy prin­ci­pal Wayne Dun­can and I want­ing to have some­thing to show­case the skills of stu­dents through­out North­ern South­land with­out it be­ing a big scary ex­pe­ri­ence.’’ About 15 acts will per­form. ‘‘It is a bit of an open mic night where peo­ple just turn up to show their tal­ents, with pupils com­ing from NSC, Waikaia and Lums­den schools at this stage.’’

Two pupils will host the show as MC’s and keep the ac­tion rolling.

‘‘We are keen to see this as a yearly event and be able to in­volve more stu­dents from all over North­ern South­land,’’ Rodgers said.

‘‘There will be plenty to en­joy and ev­ery­one in the community is in­vited.

‘‘It’s a sim­ple way to pro­vide a lot of peo­ple with a lot of plea­sure, not just the au­di­ence but also the en­trants who will love the ap­plause and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their tal­ents.’’

En­try is a gold coin do­na­tion, and the con­cert be­gins at 7pm.
