Havering Show 2017

Sun shines on record-breaking event

Around 55,000 people attended this year’s Havering Show over the bank holiday weekend (Sunday 27 and 28 August) to enjoy entertainment, food, and some of the best weather the Show has seen.

With temperatures reaching 27°C, and now in its 39th year, this year’s Show saw crowds arrive in thousands to enjoy acts including 90s chart topper Kenny Thomas, who headlined the Time 107.5FM stage on Sunday, along with Angie Brown and The Dualers. The winner of The Voice – Kids, local girl Jess Folley and BBC Let it Shine TV star Luke Stanley also took to the stage and wowed audiences.

Paul Young and his band Los Pacaminos filled the Fairkytes Live stage area when they performed and Rainham based RCWA wrestlers entertained crowds all weekend. Families enjoyed a Community Performance Stage, funfair rides, trade and craft stalls, street food, licensed bars and much more.

On Monday evening, Ray Lewis and his band Still Drifting got the audience ‘in the groove’, with their classics, including 'up on the roof' and 'Saturday night at the movies'. Punk and New wave legends legends the Blockheads also took people down memory lane when performing the famous ‘Hit me with your Rhythm Stick’.
