Council leader Roger Ramsey writes about the upcoming Havering Show

The summer holidays have begun and we have seen more than a few warm and sunny days, which can mean only one thing, the annual Havering Show is almost here.

This free event is one of the biggest and best in the borough’s calendar and I hope that once again, many local people will be joining us at Harrow Lodge Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend (Sunday 30 and Monday 31 August), to enjoy some great family entertainment.

Topping the entertainment bill at this year’s show will be 80s acts Boney M, famous for their hits Daddy Cool and Rivers of Babylon, and Bad Manners, known for songs including My Girl Lollipop and Lip up Fatty.

We’ll also have performances from some local young talent at the show, including two youngsters who have graced the Britain’s Got Talent stage, singers James Smith and Hope Murphy.

For the first time there will be live band karaoke, known as Bandeoke, at the show, and lots of exciting acts performing in the main arena including daring stunts, an army display team and the Knights of the Damned will be putting on a show.

There will also be all the usual fun things you’d expect at the show, a fun fair, lots of stalls and exhibitors and classic cars.

The show is being sponsored this year by Time FM and West and Coe, and runs from 11am to 6pm both days. Entry is free and parking costs £2.

I’m always immensely proud to see a good turn-out at the show, and I hope this year won’t be any different. I’d encourage local people to come along, bring the whole family, and have a great day out.
