Youngsters from the Livewire Rock Academy in Saffron Walden played a concert at the Rhodes Centre in Bishop’s Stortford.

Young musicians joined others from Dunmow and Epping to hammer out tunes by Green Day, The Cure, Black Sabbath and Motorhead, as well as some more contemporary numbers by The Slaves, Royal Blood and the Arctic Monkeys.

Spokesman for the school of rock, Paul, said: “The young musicians, some as young as seven, put on a performance worthy of their heroes and had the audience clapping along and cheering. Fronted by singer, Dean Austin, the sound was loud, uncompromising and infectious.”

One lucky person walked away from the concert with a brand new electric guitar, the top prize in the raffle. All the profit from the concert was donated to the Moreton Romanian Orphans fund.

Livewire is currently offering free taster lessons for prospective students. More details at
