The president of the Ilford Historical Society will be giving a talk about local art history at Wanstead Library this month.

"Local artists don't often get the praise and publicity they deserve, but this illustrated talk will look at a variety of styles and pictures of some artists who lived in Redbridge and others who came here to portray local scenes," said Jef Page.

The presentation on 14 December (free; 2.30pm) will include the work of James Pollard (1792–1867), who travelled to Wanstead at least twice to paint The Eagle pub.
