NRHn 160611 Heage Scouts Group perform thriller by Michael Jackson to take first prize in a talent competition.

Scouts and explorers from the 1st Heage Scout Groupwere a scary sight when they entered a talent competition at a Drum Hill Scout Camp in Little Eaton.

Members of the group performed the video to Michael Jackson’s Thriller to a packed marquee at the Scout campsite, taking home first prize for their efforts. The Scout camp attracts nearly a thousand campers every year. Heage Scout leader Jack Coope said: “We did a good job last year but we had to raise the bar as we expected the competition to be very high.”

The group, which has posted the performance on YouTube, were awarded 15 nights’ free camping at the site.
