The search for stars got underway at South Thames College recently, with an event to rival Simon Cowell's famous television talent show. Forget Britain's Got Talent, it was students from the Merton Campus who took to the stage to show off the impressive skills they usually keep under wraps in the classroom.
The South Thames College talent show was the brainchild of business student Waqqas Ali, who decided to take charge of organising the event after hearing fellow students singing and playing instruments around the college. With help from a committee of four other students and the college's enrichment team, they scheduled auditions and rehearsals, produced promotional materials and sold tickets for the show.
