Over 80 young people from Redhill, Reigate, Horley and Banstead got a taste of the limelight when they appeared on stage at the Harlequin Theatre in Star for a Night, the council's variety show.

They were joined by Josh Bailey, the young singer from Reigate who appeared on BBC’s Let it Shine show and who took part in Star for a Night in previous years.
