Bracknell's Got Talent semi-finalists revealedBy Laura Herbert

These acts have all been chosen as semi-finalists for the first Bracknell’s Got Talent competition.
The top 24 were picked after first auditions at South Hill Park arts centre earlier this month and will now perform in front of two judges and a small audience at the semi-finals on Saturday, April 28.
Judges in the next round include Dan Little from dance group Vanquish, who won Has Reading Got Talent? in 2010.
Organiser Lena Dee said: “There will be an invited audience of around five or six people in the industry and people who work at South Hill Park, plus two judges to give feedback after their performance and for the acts to ask any questions as well.
“We were impressed by a lot of acts at the first audition, but we want to see they can raise their game from an audition to a performance at the final in the Wilde Theatre.
“I have got some ideas for a few of the acts but it’s down to how they perform on semi-finals day.”
Lena added: “Before the final I will be spending some time with them looking at stage management and how to interact with the audience. Rather than just be like the television shows, this is a journey for people."
The semi-final takes place in the dance studio at the arts centre in Ringmead, Birch Hill, ahead of the final on Friday, May 11, and will be judged by Dan and television personality Andi Peters.
