A touch of sixteenth century life will be visiting Gretton Village Hall in December when renowned early music group Piva will be staging an evening of seasonal music and stories from days gone by.

The group members are all multi-instrumentalists with backgrounds in renaissance, jazz, classical, folk and roots music; Piva melds all their influences together to create music of the past played for today. Playing throughout the UK and Europe, they have gained a reputation for their lively performances and entertaining shows.  For this Christmas show, we are really pleased to be joined by cornet
