VIDEO: Be entertained at Gretton Music Festival

A host of musical entertainment is on offer in Gretton this weekend at the village’s fourth annual music festival.

The event began last night (Friday, August 23) with music at the Blue Bell Inn and continued this morning (Saturday, August 24) with sea shanties performed by HMS Welland at Lydia’s Coffee Shop followed by the French-themed quartet Chanterelle on the village green.

Carol Anderson, manager of Lydia’s Coffee Shop, said: “We try and take part in as many village events as possible so this is the second time we have had music on here.

“People love it and it’s something they can bring the children along to. It’s something a little bit different.”

Terry Forsey, who organises the music festival, said: “It’s unique in that it’s a community festival held in the village, not in a field somewhere.

“The four village pubs all take part and lots of other people get involved as well.

“This year we have 16 different events taking place, which makes it the biggest festival yet.”
