Some of east Belfast's most famous exports across the worlds of music, literature and industry will be on show when a new visitor centre and cafe opens its doors.

Tourism will get a boost when the Eastside Visitor Centre opens to the public on August 27.

And it will feature information and the history of everyone from musical heavyweights Van Morrison and Gary Moore, to writer CS Lewis. There will also be a digital screen charting the area's strong industrial heritage.

The centre will include a new coffee bar named after east Belfast's famous writer CS Lewis, who was known as Jack.

The Jack coffee bar will be operated by entrepreneur Linzi Rooney, who is also behind design hub and cafe Studio Souk.
