Popular 60s group, The Hollies, have been confirmed as the headline act for the Havering Show on the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The two-day free event on Sunday August 25 and Monday August 26 in Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, promises great music, daring stunt performances, a circus and fun fair, and plenty of stalls and exhibitors for all to enjoy.

From 1963 through to the mid-70s, the Hollies had more hits than even the Beatles.

In that period alone, they had 18 Top ten singles. They are famous for some classic hits including He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother, The Air That I Breathe and Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress).

English group the Tremeloes and David Van Day of Bucks Fizz and Guys ‘n’ Dolls will headline the show on Sunday 25 August, and The Hollies will perform on Monday 26 August.

Other entertainment includes the East Coast Freestyle Moto-x Display Team, which will return to perform death defying motorbike stunts, flower and craft marquees, trade stalls and refreshments, a big top with circus performances, and over 50 classic cars on display.

Councillor Michael White, Leader of the Council, said: “The Havering Show is one of our most popular annual events. It’s free and always thoroughly enjoyed by all who attend. And what a treat to have the fantastic Hollies perform this year, I for one am really looking forward to it – and if the sun continues to shine it will be a great weekend.”

Car parking is off Hornchurch road and costs £2 per car.
