The 350-odd audience who attended the Midwinter Talent Show organised by the Christchurch-based Indian Social and Cultural Club on August 4, were treated to some amazing performances, including 18 different song and dance sequences. 

Whether it was a song by a five year young performer, or one of the energetic group dance performances, or a classical dance - the audience were thoroughly entertained, and kept engaged throughout the show. There was never a dull moment throughout the evening. 

To quote the chief guest Christchurch Councillor Jimmy Chen, who is a long term supporter of the multiculturalism and diversity in our community, “Every performance was of high quality, very enjoyable. It was really an unforgettable evening."

In addition to Indian items, a Latin dance and a Chinese group performance added to the variety on offer.

As in 2017, the main sponsor of the event was China Southern Airlines. What better example of the multi-multiculturalism than a Chinese airline being a main sponsor for an "Indian event"!

There were awards for the top performers, which were declared based on a three-judge-panel and audience votes.

The price of the ticket included food served before the programme. Mango lassi and samosas were available to purchase, to those who wanted more.
