As excitement builds for this year’s Havering Show two more performers have been announced.
Country singer Lisa Wright and former Britain’s Got Talent finalist James Smith will take to the stage during the two-day family show alongside legendary singer Jocelyn Brown and soul group The Real Thing.

The Havering Show will take place at Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, on August 28 and 29 from 11am-6pm.
