Local act will perform at Hornchurch Live
Hornchurch Live is only a couple of weeks away, but a new local act may also perform at the festival.
The event on August 25 has an all-star line up including Misha B, Gareth Gates, Jamie ‘afro’ Archer and Alexa Goddard, but another performer may be added to the list.
Budding performers and songwriters were asked to film a video of themselves performing an original song for a chance to perform three songs on stage.
Leader of the council, Cllr Michael White said: “This is the first time that we have done a competition for Hornchurch Live. The show is very popular and attracts a huge audience so it will be a great opportunity for the winning artist or group.
“Residents told us that they wanted more entertainment for young people and this year we decided to get them involved by holding this competition.”
