A new street musical will be on show at three locations in the centre of Romford.

Love Birds – A Pigeon Tale will be performed by professional actors and a community choir for free on September 12 at The Brewery (11.30 am), The Liberty Shopping Centre (1pm) and Romford Market Place (2.30pm).

The Two Left Feet Theatre Company production has been commissioned by Havering Changing as part of Romford’s Big Summer of Outdoor Arts.

It follows a street pigeon called Bessy on her quest to find a "Romford hunk" to marry.

The new show is written and directed by former Queen's Theatre Hornchurch education and outreach manager/associate director, Patrick O’Sullivan, with music by Steven Markwick.
