Young relatives of Chloe Rutherford are preparing to take to the stage in honour of the teenager and her boyfriend in what is set to be an emotionally charged night of entertainment.
Sisters Beth and Eve Rowe have been lined up to perform at The Customs House on Saturday in aid of the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust.
Beth, 12, will dance alongside older cousin Charlotte Rowe to Vanessa Carlton’s A Thousand Miles, while Eve, 10, will sing When I Grow Up from Matilda.
All three are cousins of Chloe and the songs have been chosen specifically by Chloe’s mum Lisa.
The trio are among a number of acts that will take to the stage to celebrate the lives of Chloe Rutherford, 17 and Liam Curry, 19.

The couple, both from South Shields, were killed in the Manchester arena terror attack, last May, leaving their families and friends devastated.
Heartbroken, their parents created the Chloe and Liam Together Forever Trust as a lasting legacy to the pair.
Last year, a variety show took place at the Customs House and organisers hope this year’s event will be just as successful.
The event has again been organised by Stephen Sullivan.
It will feature performers from Lumsdale theatre arts, Val Armstrong theatre arts, McElvogue academy of Irish dance, The people’s mission brass band, Taylor Payne, Lauren Amour, Taylor Payne among others.
Katie Reed, who has been supported by the Chloe and Liam Trust will also be showcasing her talents on the night as well as the Trust’s patron James Bassett.
Louise Rowe, mam to Eve and Beth said: “I’m really excited to see the girls perform. It’s going to be such an emotional moment, but so special.
“They were unable to take part last year, so are really looking forward to taking part, this year - it’s going to be beautiful.
“Lisa has chosen the songs as they were special to Chloe. Neither of the girls knew the songs, so they have been working really hard to make them perfect for their Chloe and Liam.
“Beth will be dancing alongside Charlotte who has choreographed the routine, while Eve is being supported by Chloe’s friend Stacey Ghent.”
The show starts 6.30pm. Tickets priced £10 are available now from the Customs House box office or by visiting www.customshouse.co.uk/cinema/together-forever-variety-show-/
