A group of talented pupils from Paisley Grammar School have been selected to perform at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro alongside Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney. 

It has been almost a decade since the Beatles star performed a Scottish show. He returns to Glasgow tonight for his ‘Freshen Up’ gig. 

Third year pupil Mollie Quinn said: “We’re so excited to be given the opportunity to perform at the SSE Hydro. The whole group have been working really hard rehearsing.” 

Emma Loney, a second year, added: “It’s an amazing opportunity to be part of something special.”

The twenty-four students from the school will sing the chorus of everyone’s favourite “Wonderful Christmas time” at the sold-out concert, in front of a crowd of over 10,000 people.  

Andrew Dickie, Head of Expressive Arts at Paisley Grammar School said: “The pupils have been rehearsing very hard this week with only a couple of days’ notice to prepare. 

“To perform in the SSE Hydro in front of a sold-out crowd is a once in a lifetime opportunity – and a great way to end the term.” 

Councillor Jim Paterson added: “This is an incredible opportunity for our young people to be involved in a large-scale production – something that very few people ever get to do. 

“Opportunities like this really showcase the wealth of talent we have in our Renfrewshire schools and I wish all the pupils the very best of luck.”
