Young farmers from the Helston area swapped fields for the stage when they took part in a countywide cabaret competition and won places in the final.

Over the past few months members of Helston and St Keverne YFC have been busy rehearsing four acts that they went on to perform at the County Competition held at St Ives Guildhall.

The acts included a comedy sketch called ‘Miss-heard in Cornwall,’ based on the original by The Two Ronnies, while Rachael Benney and Chelsea Gilbert took on the challenge of acting out a scene from The Vicar of Dibley called 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.’

Bex Jenkin, from the club, said: "The girls did a such a good job with their act and played the characters of Alice Tinker and the vicar brilliantly."

Jono Gilbert bared all when he bravely took to the stage wearing very little clothes and performed a very energetic skipping routine.

The final act saw 16 members of the club take part in singing and acting out a Cornish song, dressed as Richard Trevithick, Bob Fitzsimmons, Betty Stoggs, Humphrey Davey and lots of farmers, fishermen and tin miners.

After a nervous wait the judges had made their decisions. All four acts were given positive feedback from the judges and two of them got through to the County Final, which will be held at Redruth Regal Theatre on Sunday, February 3 at 2pm.

Performing again will be ‘Miss-heard in Cornwall’ featuring Ben Combellack, Tom Pearce, Bex Jenkin, Frances Hosken and Peter Curnow, along with Chelsea Gilbert and Rachael Benney in ‘I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.’
