Forget The Voice, Lancashire has been showcasing its very own talent.

They may not have attracted an audience of millions, but there was a packed audience at South Ribble’s Banqueting Suite in Leyland, when the finalists in the South Ribble Search for a Star competition took to the stage.

The final 10 acts were selected after undergoing a series of gruelling auditions.

The finalists, made up of musicians and singers, battled it out at the grand final on Friday before a packed audience.

Acts ranging in age from 10 to 70 years old performed for a panel of judges, made up of the mayor, Coun Dorothy Garner, and staff members from across the council spectrum.

Overall winners were singing duet Elle Mercer and Annabel Pike. They sang Radioactive and Little Talks, and received £200 prize money.

Second was Millie-Mae Hill singing I Won’t Give Up and Skyscraper. She received £100, while the third prize of £50 went to Taylor Green, singing Some Day and her own song, Forever.

Tickets were sold for the evening, and all proceeds are going to the Mayor’s Charity Fund, which this year supports St Catherine’s Hospice, Baby Beat and Hope For Justice.
