The free family show, led by Havering Council, returns to Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, on Sunday 27 and Monday 28 August 2017, 11am-7pm.


The triumphant show had more than 50,000 visitors last year and it’s shaping up to be even bigger.

The line-up for Sunday includes a variety of acts from soul to ska-reggae and rock, with 90s chart topper Kenny Thomas headlining for the day. The Dualers, the full nine-piece band, the instantly recognisable, Angie Brown and local band Expose will also be hitting the main Time 107.5FM stage, with many more acts throughout the day.

Kenny Thomas will be on the main stage at 6.10pm.

Monday’s line-up will be headlined by the legendary Ray Lewis and The Drifters, who will be gracing the crowd with their classics including ‘There Goes My Baby’ and ‘Up on the Roof’. The Blockheads, originally led by frontman Ian Dury, along with The Style Councillors and Band Theft Audio will be performing on Monday as well as many more.

Ray Lewis and The Drifters will hit the main stage at 6pm.

Local acts on the main stage also include the singer, Jess Herring and BBC Let it Shine TV star, Luke Stanley.

BMX rider and three times Guinness world record holder Matti Hemming and the Rainham-based RCWA wrestlers will also be performing at the show. The Fairkytes Live stage returns along with the Community Performance stage.

New to the Havering Show is the VIP Kosho Bar Area, which will be located by the main stage.
