Falkirk Nursing Home Reaches Final of National Talent Show

24 April 2023

Craig Smith, a healthcare assistant at Newcarron Court Care Home, in Ronades Road, Bainsford, has done himself and the care home proud at the finals of the Care Sector’s Got Talent competition.

He auditioned earlier this year and was over the moon to make it to the final eight and attend the grand final in Derby Arena on April 20, performing a heart-wrenching rendition of Presely’s classic ‘If I Can Dream’ to impress the judges.

The four expert judges were wowed by Craig’s performance and he received some amazing comments. One judge remarked that his performance was “soulful, intense and sung fantastically well”, while another judge joked, “Elvis hasn’t left the building he’s just moved to Falkirk.”

Craig, who has worked at Newcarron since 2015, said: “I watched an Elvis film when I was seven-years-old and since then I’ve been hooked. I can’t believe I made it to the final, it was a really fantastic experience.”

A Newcarron Court Care Home spokesperson said: “Care Sector’s Got Talent showcases diverse talent from care homes across the UK and the standard of competition is exceptional.

The event was streamed live on Youtube and Newcarron’s act was one of two Scottish finalists who both came from Care Homes operated by Advinia Healthcare.

The other Scottish entry, from Hillview Care Home in Clydebank, scooped the top prize!
