A pub in Eastwood has launched an acoustic open mic night to showcase local talent.

The Three Tuns in Eastwood began the free event 10 weeks ago and the nights have been getting bigger and better each week with more than 50 people attending the last one.

Organiser Chris Barlow, whose sister Caroline is manager of the pub, decided to launch the weekly event to boost mid-week trade and show off local talent.

The 38-year-old lorry driver had the idea while visiting Whitby where a pub was having a jam night.

He said: “People are coming from as far as Worksop and Derby to perform and I’ve had agents on the phone.”

The acoustic night will take place on Tuesday October 14 from 8pm and will feature Chris Fahy and Paul Walker.
