HUNDREDS of people are expected to enjoy a week of musical entertainment in Ashwell from Saturday.
The Ashwell Music Festival is an annual event that brings choirs, opera, and performers to St Mary's church, Ashwell.
This year's programme will have an appeal for those who usually support the festival, as well as inspiring interest from those who are perhaps new to it.
A new element has been added to the festival encompassing a folk/country evening which will be held at the Bushel & Strike, and a performance by the stage school in the village hall.

Gaby Manoukian, who used to live in Odsey, will join Bernard Perkins to sing Serenade for a Summer Evening.
