The Nelson Variety Show… your opportunity to perform!

Calling All Nelson Children, Staff and Parents… 

Have you got a talent that you would like to share or would you just like to have a laugh on stage with your friends?  The Nelson Variety Show, at this year’s Nelson Summer Fair is your chance to perform! We are looking for everything from Dance Acts to Magicians to Singers to Comedians to Musicians. You can be as creative as you want. Individuals or groups are welcome and this opportunity is open to all Nelson children, staff and parents too!  The show will take place during the Summer Fair between 12pm–3pm on Saturday 30th June and performances can be up to 2 minutes long. Each act can be children, adults or a combination of both. We will have a PA system and microphones that you can use – just provide any music / instruments and props that you need!

If you or your child would like to take part, please complete the form below and drop it into the PTA mailbox at the school office- or email us the information by Wednesday 6th June. Please fill in a separate form for each child who wants to perform. 
After we receive your application, we will contact you with further information. 

Variety Show Information and Entry Form

There are a limited number of performance slots so please apply quickly to reserve your space. Please note this is purely a variety show and not a competition- it’s an opportunity to celebrate the many talents, cultures and personalities we have at Nelson School.
