The regional heats for this year's Slam Jam, a performance-based spoken word competition for 11-18 year olds, were held at Banovallum School in Horncastle this month and Caistor Grammar was represented by Natasha Francis, Beth Laverick and Angus Haswell. All performed well in the face of some very strong competition from across the region and Beth Laverick and Natasha Francis were selected to go through to the final, to be held at the Lincoln Drill Hall on June 27th. Honourary mention goes to Angus Haswell, who was given the unenviable task of being the first performer on the night to take the stage. He performed well to a cold room, but was just pipped at the post. Congratulations to all involved and good luck for the final to Beth Laverick and Natasha Francis.
