Councillor Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration at Mansfield District Council, commented: "There are few things more heart-warming than hearing your child sing.
"I would urge parents to come along to the Cool Choirs event to support their children and to bring other family members and friends with them, to see the excellent and creative displays of pop memorabilia on offer – there really is something to suit every taste."
The event is part of the Pop Goes Mansfield exhibition, which runs at the Museum until Saturday 21 November, which has on display costumes, music and memories celebrating Mansfield's musical heritage since the Second World War.
Mansfield rocker, Alvin Stardust got the exhibition off to a grand start playing a live acoustic set and signing autographs for fans. Alvin has also donated a variety of costumes and memorabilia to the exhibition.
