Children turned the key to open the Fun Box as the eponymous ‘rock stars’ raucous show lifted the roof at Victoria Hall.

Fun Box players, Anya, Gary and Kevin warmed the audience up with some loose cover numbers and made their introductions.

Anya said Campbeltown’s Factory Shop was an amazing store for creating special outfits, at crazy low prices, but it is unlikely Gary’s punk rocker plastic mohican haircut is available off the shelf.

Frontman Kevin said he had played in some of Scotland’s hardest venues for raising a laugh including Prestonpans Miners’ Welfare Club, ‘That’s a tough place,’ he added.

The team travelled from Dunoon to play three days of back to back shows  and experienced a variety of accommodation, the best of which, they agreed was Tarbert’s Starfish.

Many mums bought Funbox merchandise from the pop-up stall. 25_c36funbox05
