MUSICIANS from across the country converge on London's East End at the weekend for a charity carnival at Brick Lane venue 93 Feet East.

The London Theatre Academy Carnival on Sunday includes performances from eight-piece Latin funk band BallaLouda, African-influenced dance band Matoke and jazz star Sara Mitra.

The Academy's All Stars also perform, as well as DJs including Jambo (FreeJive), Altered Vibes Soundsystem, and Bill ChiKain and Eddie B who is playing rare funk and soul, hip-hop and bass-heavy carnival sounds.

The evening also celebrates the launch of the Academy which is a theatre-based educational tour operator offering packages of workshops, sight-seeing and performances as well access to the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's Globe theatre on the Southbank.

The charity is hoping its patrons Alan Rickman and Sir Ian Holm will show-up to join in the fun.

Money raised goes to the Sponsored Arts For Education charity which uses theatre and education for life-saving information about HIV and Aids in Kenya.

The carnival kicks-off at 3pm and goes on until 10.30pm. Tickets £5 in advance and £6 on the door.
