THE East London Strings group is to hold a concert later this month.

The musicians, who are a mix of professionals and amateurs, will perform a series of light classics, including pieces by Rachmaninov, Vivaldi and John Williams, at the show on Saturday January 19.

It begins at 7.30pm and takes place at St Mary's Church in Walthamstow Village.

Entry is free but there will be a collection in aid of charities the Stroke Association and Macmillan Nurses.

Organisers say people do not need to book in advance to attend.
