Music fans from across the borough are counting down the days to this year’s Havering Show.
The Havering Show returns to Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch on August 25 and 26 with a vast array of musical talent including headline acts Toploader, Aswad, Alison Limerick and Eban Brown, former lead singer of The Stylistics.
Sunday headliners Aswad are one of Britain’s most successful reggae bands with a rich career spanning over 40 years.
Revellers can expect to hear hits including ‘Don’t Turn Around’ and ‘Shine’ during their set.
Aswad’s Angus ‘Drummie Zeb’ Gay is relishing the chance to play at Harrow Lodge Park, saying: “We are going to bring a sweet roots reggae vibe to the Havering Show.
“Performing at town shows is the best for us because they are usually outside in the sun with people in a great mood to listen to what we do.”
Singer songwriter legend Alison Limerick also takes to the stage on Sunday.
Best known for her 90s hit ‘Where Love Lives’, Alison is excited about the show, saying: “I bring the joy that comes with being able to do the thing I love.
“I’ll be reflecting back that amazing feeling you get from days spent in company with people in the mood to dance, sing, laugh and share love in the sun (or rain). I look forward to havin’ it large in Havering!”
New Jersey talent Eban Brown, former lead singer of the Stylistics, feels at home in Havering.
He said: “I’m always based in Essex when I’m here, so it’s my home away from home. I’ll be bringing an old school soulful vibe to the Havering Show, performing the most popular Stylistics songs that are the soundtracks to our lives.”
