Junior Barrow festival-goers enjoy fun in the sun

FURNESS’S youngest festival goers enjoyed a free musical treat in the sunshine.

A Mini Music Festival took place at Greengate Infant School in Barrow on Wednesday, and saw local performers appearing free of charge to put on a show for three to seven-year-olds.

Caroline Hoggarth, headteacher at Greengate, said: “The idea was to try and get children and their families in our area to have a taste of KidzFest.”

Lisa Gaga, organiser of Barrow children’s festival, KidzFest, arranged acts for the event.

The day started with appearances from Pete Thompson, Meryn Nixon and Amey Haughin as Disney characters.

Ex-pupil Jamie Rooke also reappeared to perform One Direction hits while Leah Coplen performed an Amy Winehouse tribute.

Mrs Hoggarth said: “It was absolutely fantastic, the children just had the best day. A lot of them will not have experienced anything like this before.

“We will definitely have to do it again next year.”
