The Station Sessions Festival has been running since 4 April at St Pancras International station in London, and brings music fans and travellers the very best in emerging talent from the capital and beyond.

Tonight (Thursday), PRS for Music will present Orlando Seale and The Swell to a live audience from 5.30pm to 6.30pm on the station concourse, alongside the Eurostar departures.

Together, they are an eight-piece orchestral band with full string section. They have already built up a head of steam through their euphoric live shows, winning plaudits for their gigs at London venues The Old Vic Tunnels, The Lexington, ICA and Union Chapel.

This year’s festival highlights also feature exclusive sets from the likes of The Voice’s Bo Bruce and Adam Isaac, Sophie Delila, The Noble Thiefs, Matthew & Me and Pyramids.

There are also a number of secret gigs taking place throughout the festival from well known artists. Last year’s event included an array of breakthrough acts such as alt-J, who later went on to win the Mercury Music Award 2012.

Some of the station retailers are also hosting fringe stages offering weekly lunchtime and late evening events. To find out more about the festival, which runs until 9 May, please visit
