"Performing at town shows is the best for us because they are usually outside in the sun with people in a great mood to listen to what we do."

Singer songwriter legend Alison Limerick also takes to the stage on Sunday.

Best known for her 90s hit 'Where Love Lives', Alison is excited about the show, saying: "I bring the joy that comes with being able to do the thing I love.

"I'll be reflecting back that amazing feeling you get from days spent in company with people in the mood to dance, sing, laugh and share love in the sun (or rain). I look forward to havin' it large in Havering!"

New Jersey talent Eban Brown, former lead singer of the Stylistics, feels at home in Havering.

He said: "I'm always based in Essex when I'm here, so it's my home away from home. I'll be bringing an old school soulful vibe to the Havering Show, performing the most popular Stylistics songs that are the soundtracks to our lives."

A wealth of local talent, music legends, street food, refreshing drinks and a whole lot more guarantee a great value weekend out for the whole family.

Tickets are £3 for adults when purchased online at www.havering.gov.uk/haveringshow or £4 on the door. Under 10s go free.
