The final acts and entertainment of the borough’s biggest summer event, the Havering Show, have been unveiled.

More than 50,000 people attended Harrow Lodge Park, in Hornchurch, last year, and Havering Council is hoping this year’s event on the August bank holiday weekend will be even bigger.

Joining 90s chart topper Kenny Thomas, who is headlining the Time 107.5FM stage on Sunday August 27, are The Dualers and Angie Brown.

Essex’s own Expose are also playing, as well as local acts including the singer Jess Herring and BBC Let it Shine TV star Luke Stanley.

The legendary Ray Lewis and The Drifters, who will be gracing the crowd with their classics There Goes My Baby and Up on the Roof, are headlining on Monday.

The Blockheads, originally led by frontman Ian Dury, are playing before The Drifters at 5pm.

They penned Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick, What a Waste and Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, and are sure to be great fun.

The Style Councillors, Band Theft Audio and the Queen tribute act Majesty will also be performing on Monday.

BMX rider and three times Guinness world record holder Matti Hemming and the Rainham based RCWA wrestlers are both part of the free family show’s entertainment.

The Fairkytes Live stage returns along with the Community Performance stage.

New to 2017 is the VIP Kosho Bar Area, which will be located by the main stage.

Time 107.5 FM and Havering Council will be running a number of competitions to win entry to this exclusive area.

Havering Council leader Cllr Roger Ramsay encourage all of the borough’s residents to attend.

He said: “The Havering Show is the borough’s biggest event and is loved by many residents.

“We take pride in this show and have a number of free activities for the entire community including a fun fair and a crafts market.

“This is set to be Havering’s biggest summer event.

“I encourage as many people as possible to attend.”
