From toddlers to teenagers, Variety Scotland hosted 178 outstanding young performers at the world-famous Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on Sunday April 29th. The Scottish team were also delighted to welcome X Factor finalists, The Risk, whom made a special guest appearance at the event!

An audience of over 1,500 people were enthralled by the vocal groups, instrumentalists, solo singers, magic and comedy to provide a showcase of highly impressive Young Scottish talent. X Factor finalists, The Risk, made a special guest appearance, and pledged their support for the show and the causes supported by Variety, the Children’s Charity, in Scotland.

Thank you to The Risk and their team for providing an extra special treat for the special event – you were certainly pretty popular with our audience! Producer, Angus Simpson, trawled the central belt of Scotland from Dunoon to Edinburgh to find the xast of up and coming young stars.

Angus said:

“This is the fifth showcase of emerging talent we’ve produced here in Scotland and it was reckoned to be the best yet!”

“It is heartwarming to see so many brilliant youngsters who are willing to give their time and talents to help their less fortunate counterparts.”

“We couldn’t have done it without the unstinting efforts of our orchestra and our fantastic production team who all gave their services free of charge.”

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2012 Young Variety Scotland showcase and we can’t wait to see you all again next year!
