The borough’s biggest summer event, the Havering Show is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year with music from four different decades.
The acts and entertainment has been announced for the Havering Show, which takes place over the August bank holiday weekend, Sunday 26 and Monday, August 27.
Last year thousands of Havering residents spent the weekend partying in sweltering sunshine in Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch.
This year, to mark the show’s 40th anniversary, the entertainment will come from four decades of music, from the 1970s to the 2000s.
Representing the 70s is Heatwave, an international funk, disco band formed in 1975.
The internationally diverse group originally featured Johnnie Wilder Jr., Keith Wilder, Rod Temperton, Mario Mantese, Ernest Bilbo, Eric Johns and Roy Carter.
They will be joined on the Sunday by The Resevoir Mods, Beyond Conspiracy and Navi - King of Pop - the world’s number one Michael Jackson Tribute.
Navi has been performing as Michael Jackson for the past 24 years and one of his performances on Youtube has more than three million views.
Members from the legendary S Club 7 will be performing to represent the 2000s.
Tina Barrett, Jo O’Meara and Bradley McIntosh now form S Club Party and they will be taking the stage on Monday.
Baby D will be reminding audiences of some of the music from the 1990s such as their UK number one single Let Me Be Your Fantasy from 1994.
They will be joined by Expose, Andrew Browning - A tribute to George Michael and A Little Respect - Tribute to Erasure.
Andrew Blake-Herbert, chief executive at Havering Council, told the Recorder: “This year’s 40th anniversary Havering Show promises to be the best one yet.
“We’ve got bands from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s, some great tribute acts and lots of original talent on the Fairkytes Live stage.
“Once again the show is completely free on both days, with the main stage being hosted by Time 107.5 FM.
“We look forward to welcoming visitors from near and far this August Bank Holiday weekend.”
