The Bridewell tea room at Wymondham Heritage Museum was packed for a performance of music from the 1920s to the 1940s.
It was the first of a planned series of concerts which featured music from the piano recently donated to the museum.
Dating from the 1870s the piano accompanied the silent movies at Wymondham's first cinema.
It was given to the museum by the David Townsend, grandson of William Spalding, the cinema's original owner.
The Wymondham Regal Experience donated £300 to restore and retune the piano.
