New Library Facebook Page

Libraries have been sharing a weekly programme of content for families, children and young people from the beginning of lockdown. The library Service has a new facebook page. Please see the details below. This aims to replicate what would be happening in our libraries.

We’re moving this content away from the main library Facebook page to a dedicated children and families area at

With a dedicated page we will be better able to engage and respond to enquiries making it easier for us to shape the content those using the page would like.


IMS Performance with RAF Music

I am sorry to send this so late on a Tuesday. On Thursday evening at 7.30pm we will hold a ‘Facebook Premiere’ event to showcase the Instrumental Music Services’ collaboration with RAF Music Service – an exclusive performance of ‘Lass of the Loch’. It would be much appreciated if you could share either the facebook or twitter links below through your school’s accounts to draw it to the attention your school community and as many people in East Lothian as possible.
This has been a great opportunity for all of our young musicians and we hope that everyone watching the performance on Thursday night enjoys their hard work, dedication and talent.
Best wishes,

Musical Theatre Easter School at The Brunton

Musical Theatre Easter School for ages 8 – 16 years.
The Brunton in Musselburgh is running a Musical Theatre Easter School in partnership with Tommie Travers. Following last year’s sell-out Fringe production of Oliver! there has been a real demand for similar experiences.
The Easter School is open to 8 – 16 year olds, and runs from Sunday 5 – Thursday 9 April, culminating in a Showcase Performance on the Thursday evening at The Brunton. The experience focuses on a variety of musical theatre songs which will be performed in the showcase. As the children learn these songs under the guidance of a professional team, they will develop vocal techniques, have the opportunity to learn dance routines and also take part in fun drama games which build confidence.
The cost to participate is £120, and tickets for the Showcase Performance will be £10 adult, £9 child, £34 family of 4.

Benmore Day 4

Well it was our last full day of activities today and what a day it has been. One group were caving and exploring the forest, one group were scrambling and caving and the other group were exploring the forest and gorge walking.

Caving was perhaps one of the most challenging activities for the groups but once again there was no giving up, everyone tried their best even when it was scary and the nerves were kicking in.

As I type everyone is getting ready for the disco, the highlight of the week which will begin in about half an hour.

This has been a fantastic week.  The children have been amazing. They have been supportive and encouraging and have all tried so many new things. They can’t wait to see you all tomorrow and be back in their own beds. There has been lots of discussion about what they are getting for tea tomorrow when they get home.

We will keep you updated with our expected time of arrival tomorrow.
