The judges were Great Yarmouth MP Tony Wright, borough council leader Barry Coleman, borough council executive director Jane Ratcliffe and borough council culture sport and leisure manager Marie Hartley.

All winners received cash prizes and a trophy to mark the occasion which were presented by the Mayor. Cara Hawkins and Emma Seamarks were overall runners up and each received three sessions with a vocal coach, Martyn Shults. We were delighted as to how many people entered for the competition and for their high standard as well. I would also like to say a very special thank-you to the judges for all of their hard work.”
