Villagers gearing up for a great music fest

Preparations are well under way for Gretton Music Festival 2012.

Sponsored by Eggbox Graphics, the event will feature everything from hymns to jazz and rock to opera.

The festival takes place from Friday, August 24, to Monday, August 27, and will include an open mic session, a children’s French sing-along and a performance by a ukulele band.

Visitors will get a chance to sing their favourite hymns at the village’s Baptist Church and the open mic session is being held at The Hatton Arms pub, Gretton.

New artists this year include the Lazy Alligator Jazz Band and singer Barb Jungr whose show at The Core theatre, Corby, in March, was a sell-out. Gretton Sports and Social Club will welcome Northampton-based The Above.
