Campus Has Talent

The stage is set and ready for Campus Has Talent!

This year's Penninghame and St Ninian's Primary Schools talent competition will be recorded using The Vault Arts Centre's state-of-the-art livestreaming camera equipment and will be made available to parents, via private link, on The Vault Arts Centre's YouTube channel straight after the show.

Every year Pennighame & St. Ninian's Primary Schools have an end of term talent show called Penninghame Has Talent. Each class auditions and acts are chosen to perform on the last day of term. Talents on display can be singing, dancing, gymnastics, comedy acts and instrumentals.

This normally takes place in the school hall however Covid restictions have prevented the school from having too many children mixing, and the usual packed live audience, so this year The Vault Arts Centre will provide an alternative venue, giving participants experience of a real live music / performing arts venue.
