Romford Market will be offering a free taste of this year's Havering Show as it features performers for its very own MarketFEST this summer.

Taking place on Saturday 10 August between 11am and 4pm, the free event offers great music, dancing and theatre from local performers, covering a wide variety of genres to ensure there is something for everyone.

Amongst those taking to the stage at MarketFEST is fresh young pop singer Charlie Dillon, best known for featuring on ITV's The Voice Kids, along with Factor Essex finalist Charlotte Ambrose, who has also been selected from several local applicants to perform on the main stage at the Havering Show on Sunday 25 August. Beloved soul and Motown singer Mr Soul will also be giving a taste of what visitors expect over the Havering Show bank holiday weekend.

Theatre performances will also be taking place with theatre schools Thameside Young Producers, Emery Stage School and Dreams Theatre School, along with party dances from favourite children's characters courtesy of Lightnin Drama Group.
