A WINCHESTER rock star entertained children at an exclusive hospice gig last week.

Frank Turner visited Naomi House hospice in Sutton Scotney on Wednesday, November 29, to meet the children and play some of his hits.

It has been a successful year for Frank with a performance at the Olympics opening ceremony and a world tour.

The hospice cares for children with life-limiting conditions and many have limited sensory awareness and are able to interact better through music.

Frank said: “I had a great time at the hospice and thought it was a really magical place. They were such cool kids.”

Katy Burton, hospice activities coordinator, added: “It was great to welcome Frank to the hospices for his most exclusive gig to date. He was fantastic with the children and we all really enjoyed joining in with our drums, shakers and tambourines as Frank played guitar.”
