Talent At Uni! The live final of the biggest ever talent show to hit the City of Leeds took place on 23 February 2013 at the Stage@Leeds on the University of Leeds campus. Singers, pianist, five-piece band, comedian, freestyle dance group, and a freestyle footballer all impressed the audience with their talent and the event was enjoyed by a packed house. The finalists all performed really well, and it was an extremely difficult task for the judges to choose the overall winner.
Josh Davies, a solo singer and acoustic guitarist representing the University of Leeds, was the winner of the show with his amazing performance. The audience was captivated by his obvious talent, and he was very pleased to receive his prize.
This amazing event was sponsored by Hendersons Insurance Brokers which was a massive boost to the student organisers, Nic, David and Will and they were delighted with this support. Swink Design, Smart PR and MBIM Internet Marketing, and Doo Marketing were involved from the start, helping the students as part of their Performance Management project. Other sponsors were Elliot Charles Group, O&H, and Allsop.
Over £1,350 was raised on behalf of the Leeds Children’s Charity from this event. The money will be used to provide much-needed respite for 8 disadvantaged children aged 7 to 11 years who would not otherwise have the opportunity to have a break from difficult home situations. On behalf of the organisers, Nic said, “we are glad all the money has gone to such a worthwhile cause.”
