An axed primary school is to host its last show tonight.

Pupils at Lismore Primary in Bingham will be performing Sleeping Beauty to parents, staff and members of the public from 6.30pm. The school will close its doors for good on Friday.

City councillors voted last month to close the school, along with Bonnington in Leith and Westburn in Wester Hailes.

Portobello and Craigmillar councillor Mike Bridgman, who spent years fighting to save the school, said:  "It's the last concert so hopefully the community turns out to see it."
