Deptford's live music festival welcomes Gorgeous George and Kate Tempest to this year's event, starting on Thursday.

But they are just two highlights at Nestival, which sees a variety of acts coming to the The Birds Nest Pub over five days.

The event's promoter Joel Matthews said: "We have put together an amazing line up of local and London-based artists and musicians.

"The Birds Nest has a great history of music so many top artists have agreed to play the festival.

"To name a couple, Gorgeous George and Kate Tempest have both got huge this year."

Alongside the music an art exhibition presented by The Birds Nest's Undercurrents Gallery will be in evidence and there will also be a chance to play for a pint at the beer garden acoustic stage.

Other acts include Straw Dogs, Black Plastic, The Meat and Onions Gang, Reckless Ambition as well as the oddly named Charlie The Piano.
