Singers, poets, dancers and beatboxers graced the stage for five minutes of fame in a weekend of talent shows.
Acts aged as young as nine rapped and waved their jazz hands for a chance to be crowned Sharrow’s top talent at The Old Junior School, South View Road in the Sheffield suburb.
A young performer, who goes by the stage name Proverb, wowed the audience by singing and rapping to his self-penned funny songs as he played guitar.
Luisa Golob, event coordinator for Sheffield’s Creative Action Network, said the evening was a ‘great success’.
She said: “There was an incredible atmosphere.
“It was great to have an alternative night for lots of local families to get together.”
Proverb was one of 12 contestants to perform in front of the audience and MC Nige, compère for the evening.
All-girl band The Squanderers dazzled with their moves and vocals to a hotly contested joint-second place, alongside beatboxer Tobias.
All proceeds from the night went to Sharrow Festival and Lantern Carnival.
About 60 people attended the event, which Luisa said she hoped would now become bi-annual.
Sharrow proved it was not the only hub of talent in the region though, as the North Derbyshire village of Eckington showcased its own contest the following night at Eckington Civic Centre, Market Street.
The night attracted an array of local talent and raised £1,000 for the Royal National College for the Blind.
