A Leytonstone pub is to host a mini festival this Sunday showcasing local music talent.

It takes place at the Birkbeck Tavern in Langthorne Road from 3pm.

Acts playing include Danny and The Champions of the World, The Snakes, Graham Larkbey and the Escape Committee and singer-songwriter Benjamin Folke Thomas.

The "All-Dayer" event is organised by the pub's promotions group What's Cookin', and will also include a BBQ.

Entry is free but donations for the musicians are encouraged.

It comes as new management prepares to take over in March.

Those currently in charge, Stephen Ferguson and partner Ali Vickers, are leaving because they wanted to have a break from the anti-social hours of running a pub.
