The Skye Bluebells and Snowdrops, The Skye Tots - the youngest in the cast were also put through their paces, with each dance routine receiving the strong applause it deserved.
One of the older dancers, Katie Pike, also took to the microphone, to give an accomplished rendition of Someone Like You.
Members of Skye Dance were joined by other performers to add to the occasion.
The Sarah Ryan singers presented a series of songs that were dotted throughout the programme
In these cases, the young singers showed great skill in their presentation, with Bryoni Taylor performing a solo and a duet with Rory Ryan. Axminster Primary School Glee Club also sang three songs for the event, the Axminster Primary School Rap, Wings and the Diamond Jubilee song, Sing.
