There was something for everyone on day two of this year’s Havering Show, including mad scientists and soul legends of the 1970s.

As the sun shined over Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, the borough’s residents were treated to a fun-filled day of music, dance and entertainment.

Here we’ve collected just a few of the photos our photographers captured as they wandered around the event.

Our reporters were also on-hand with exclusive back-stage access to chat to some of the acts that wowed crowds on the main stage.

Among them were up and coming girl group Skarl3t, Oasis tribute act Noasis and A Special Kinda Madness, before 70s soul group The Real Thing bought this year’s show to an end.

For a full report on the entire weekend’s action, be sure to pick up a copy of next week’s Romford Recorder, on sale from Friday.
