Reni Williams, 5, Rai Williams, 8, Gracie Briggs, 13, Keira Fleming, 8, and Jay Withers, 13 (on the ground). All the children are from Little Voices, Big Stars.

Young singing sensations, Little Voices, Big Stars are among the line up performing at the free community event at Edinburgh College to celebrate the opening of the Borders Railway Eskbank Station.

Come along to the college on Saturday 5 September. The fun starts at 09:30 when Lasswade Concert Band will be performing in the food court.

There’s a host of activities on offer from Science Festival experiments, to face painting and badge making. You can tour the campus and even have a go in the college’s electric car.

Before golden ticket holders head off to their VIP train trip from Eskbank, Councillor Jim Bryant will say a few words of welcome and Erin Gilbertson, 13, will unveil a commemorative plaque.

Music includes Little Voices, Big Stars, who will be on stage from 13:30 performing numbers including songs from the film Pitch Perfect 2 as well as Little Mix hits. Also booked are St David’s Ceilidh Band, Callum Bertram with Fortune Star and a barbershop quartet.

Edinburgh College car park will be available for use on the day, providing limited car parking facilities for approximately 140 cars, including disabled.

No parking will be permitted in each of the four Midlothian stations. Golden ticket holders and indeed anyone attending the event, are advised, where possible therefore, to be dropped off before the event and picked up afterwards.
