A Children’s Choirfest will be officially opened by MP John Bercow, while the Saturday night Chill on the Hill event will unfold with a performance by the magnificent RAF Halton pipes and drum band who are taking part in the Edinburgh Military Tattoo in August.

Talented opera singer Jess Bergman, who is training at the Royal Academy and stunning audiences locally and internationally, will also perform.

Sensational pianist and vocalist Alex Miles will take the audience to piano heaven with a superb set of songs, a smile that lights up a room and a glow of professionalism that leaves her audiences stunned and calling for more.

There will also be a journey of jazz favourites from talented local musician friends who will be bringing back joyous rhythms and well known jazz favourites.
