CHILDREN have been rocking out on cardboard guitars as part of the Story Museum’s children’s concert.

David Gibb, from the museum in Pembroke Street, Oxford, said: “It was a triumph and a real pleasure. There were even children dancing on the way out.”

Mr Gibb said that about 70 children brought their parents and grandparents along for the half-term treat resulting in yesterday’s sell-out concert.

Headliner of the event was ex-front man of the Candyskins-turned children’s acoustic folk-rock act, Nick Cope, who performed his renowned Songbook show.

He sang about things from monkeys and bears to socks and mud. Mr Cope, 50, from East Oxford, said: “I’ve been doing these events for about eight years now.”
