In sweltering sunshine, thousands of Havering residents spent the weekend partying away in front of the Havering Show’s three main stages.

The Recorder was on hand on both days to keep everyone updated about what exactly was in store – why not see if you can spot yourself in our gallery?

As well as 90s chart topper Kenny Thomas, who headlined the Time 107.5FM stage on Sunday, The Dualers and Angie Brown also brought their hits to life.

Essex’s own Expose also played, as did singer Jess Herring and BBC Let it Shine TV star Luke Stanley.

The legendary Ray Lewis and his act Still Drifting, graced the crowd with their classics earlier this evening.

Rock and Roll heroes The Blockheads also had the crowd singing along.

BMX rider and three times Guinness world record holder Matti Hemming and the Rainham based RCWA wrestlers were both on hand throughout the weekend to provide wow the crowds and provide free family entertainment.

Headlining the show this evening was former lead vocalist with The Drifters, soul superstar Ray Lewis.

Speaking just before he took to the main stage in front of thousands of excited Havering resident, he said: “It’s great to be here.

“I can’t believe we’ve been blessed with such beautiful weather – it’s fantastic.”

And the rock and roll hall of famer - who was decked out in a catching black and white outfit – couldn’t resist making a joke at his own expense.

Pointing down to his wardrobe choices he said: “Please forgive me, I’m surrounded by younger people today so... When in Rome, do as the Romans do I suppose.”

Accompanied by three backing singers, Mr Lewis treated the crowd to a medley of Mowtown and soul hits to bring the two-day show to an end.

A number of acts had performances streamed live on the Recorder’s Facebook page, visit www.facebook.com/RomfordRecorder/ to see more.
