CIRENCESTER Deer Park School is hoping that the final of this year's school talent Show will raise more money than ever before for Children In Need.

And with the promise of a singing dog on stage, the event should prove a hit with students and parents alike.

As well as raining funds for charity Children in Need, the event gives all pupils aged 11-16 the chance to showcase their creative talents, including singing, dancing and comedy.

Due to the numbers of students entering this year two heats, on November 14 and 15 will be held prior to the grand final on the evening of Friday 16 November.

An independent judging panel will decide the top six acts during which time members of Deer Park staff will entertain the audience with live music performances.
