John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono helps launch The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus aimed at providing support for new musicians across Europe. Sarah Mills reports.

 The Tour Bus is a mobile recording studio set up to help budding musicians.

As well as performing at the event at the Museum of Liverpool, local band Mic Lowry got a look inside the bus too.

Member of band Mic Lowry, said, "(This) makes a big difference because it gives people who haven't got a chance usually to go and record on the bus, that's got under-floor heating by the way. And it's great recording, great recording equipment."

The bus will visit schools, colleges and festivals to provide free workshops for young people - as Brian Rothschild, executive director of the John Lennon Educational Tour explained.

A crew of three young people will travel on the bus and help other youngsters learn.
