As a result of the global pandemic, Millfield’s annual Showcase charity talent show in aid of the school’s three chosen charities was broadcast online to students and parents this month. A live performance event will be organised later this year.
Millfield’s student-run Charity Committee have selected three charities to support throughout the year. These are: Heads Up Somerset, supporting a range of mental health issues in the southwest, Barnardo’s children’s charity and the Lalibela High School in Ethiopia.
Performances included a vocal cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Make You Feel My Love’ by Year 9 Amaia, a solo drum performance titled ‘Frantic’ from Year 9 Alexander, Year 11 Oyinkan singing Lauren Daigle’s ‘You Say’, contemporary dance from Year 9 Tanya, Year 9 Nancy performing Bond theme tune ‘No Time to Die’, Lower Sixth Al and Year 11 Danny with an electric guitar and drum piece called ‘Hardwired’, Year 9 Tansy performing ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ from Les Miserables, Lower Sixth singer Caity and Upper Sixth Connor on guitar performing ‘I’m Gonna Find Another You’ by John Mayer, Upper Sixth Noah with a contemporary dance piece, Year 10 Melissa performing ‘Summer Days’ and Year 9 dancers Amalia and Amaia with another modern dance piece.
