Excitement is building as the headline acts for the Havering Show have been revealed.

Paloma Faith’s live band, The Faithettes, and British soul group The Real Thing will be the frontline acts at this year’s Havering Show.

The Dualers and A Special Kinda Madness will also appear at the free event, which takes place on Sunday August 28 and Monday August 29 at Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch.

After touring the world for more than five years, The Faithettes will be arriving in the borough to perform as Paloma Faith records a new album.

The band have graced the world’s biggest and best stages with performances at Glastonbury and New Orleans Jazz Festival in recent years.

1970s soul stars The Real Thing will be blasting out hits including Can’t Get By Without You, Can You Feel The Force and chart-topper You To Me Are Everything.

Much-loved ska and reggae act The Dualers, will perform on the Sunday, while A Special Kinda Madness, will play on the Monday.

More acts for the main stage and a second stage, which will host local unsigned acts, will be announced soon by Havering Council.

Last year’s show, which featured Boney M and Bad Manners, attracted crowds of about 40,000 people over the two days.
