S Club Party, formed of three of the original members of S Club 7, Bradley McIntosh, Jo O’Meara and Tina Barrett, will headline on Monday.

Bradley McIntosh told us about his start in the business, the group and their aspirations for the show.

“I went to an audition and got picked out of thousands of people and made it through to S Club and I was one of the last to join the band.

“Most memorable has been performing at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s 50th anniversary, with Brian May, Queen, Cliff Richard and meeting the Royals.

“We’ve heard so much about the Havering Show and we’re so looking forward to performing this year. We will bring a lot of nostalgic good fun music.”

What makes performing at something like the Havering Show so special?

“The PA systems are always much better, the crowd are a lot bigger and give out so much energy.

“There’s a wider range of ages and a lot of food which I love to get my hands on.

“You get to see local and up-and-coming talent and also sometimes you get to catch up with a lot of bands that you haven’t seen for a long time that were around when we were around.”

What is their favourite number to perform?

“It’s got to be Reach because no matter what music you’re into or what age you are, people always have a good sing-along. If you want to know if we’re going to perform the song, you have to come and watch.”

And the group’s plans for after the show?

“We have a big schedule for the rest of the year, we’re off to Australia, eastern Europe and up and down the UK and Ireland and when I’m not on the road I’m busy in the studio writing and producing for other artists.”

Baby D will also be bringing a big dose of 90s nostalgia to the show on Monday.

She wants to transport the crowds back to a time when people danced in the fields without a care in the world.

She said: “My dear pa was my first inspiration, he was half Sicilian/Maltese so I was brought up on Italian love songs, would you believe! My father also sang and always had a microphone in my face! So I owe it all to him really.

“I just love it when the audience are vibed up and singing back at me! It gives me goose bumps. Also, I adore meeting people and hearing all their stories especially about what Let Me Be Your Fantasy has meant to them over the years. I’ve had people get married to it, and have had people tell me they want it as their funeral song which is really touching.”

Baby D will be on stage at 3.45pm followed by S Club Party at 5pm.
