The band Blossoms have opened a library at a primary school in their hometown of Stockport.

The group opened the environmentally friendly Hobbit House, which houses a library and IT suit at Greave Primary school.

The design is a one of a kind custom built to Greave's own specifications.

To ensure there was no impact on the environment the school didn't want to build a concrete construction so went underground.

Blossoms spent time with students who got the chance to ask the band lots of questions, and pupils and staff serenaded the band with a special version of their hit single Charlemagne. 

After cutting the red ribbon, the band had a tour of the new place and rounded off the visit by posing for pictures with students and signing autographs.
