Young singers and musicians under 18 are invited to showcase their talent at Gretton Music Festival.

Organisers of the event are holding an open mic session from 2pm until 4pm on Saturday, August 23, at the village green.

Eight performers will get the chance to play a 15-minute session and slots are available, free of charge, on a first come, first served basis.

The Youth BUSkers event is a new addition to the programme and performers can play their own instruments or take a backing-track along.

The festival, now in its fifth year, takes place from Friday, August 22, until Monday, August 25, and is sponsored by Seatons Solicitors.
