There’s something for everyone as residents are invited to look beyond the music at this year’s 40th anniversary Havering Show.

Wrestling, Irish dance, a majorettes troupe, superhero and puppy patrol characters are among the array of entertainment planned for the Havering Show which takes place over the bank holiday weekend on Sunday, August 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, aside from a great musical line-up there will also be soft play for toddlers, quadbikes, giant inflatables and a free interactive animal experience from Wild Science, whose friendly experts will be bringing with them a diverse range of animals from the cute and fluffy to the exotic, including reptiles, mammals, amphibians and invertebrates.

Councillor Damian White, leader of the council, said: “This 40th anniversary show promises to be the best so far. We’ve a great range of acts from four decades and a whole host of other talent, as well as attractions that will appeal to everyone, young and old. We look forward to seeing you all there.”

The enormously popular RCWA wrestlers are returning for their third year and will be entertaining the crowd in the wrestling ring on both days.

Over the two days other attractions include a fairground, craft stalls, street food, licensed bars and other refreshments.

Speaking about the popular two-day festival, Andrew Blake-Herbert, chief executive at Havering Council said: “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.”
