The Havering Show will not take place again this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The annual event is normally held in Harrow Lodge Park, Hornchurch, in August but was cancelled last year because of Covid-19. 

“As with all large public events, the show takes many months of preparation and planning,” explained councillor Damian White, leader of Havering Council. 

“Faced with the uncertainty of whether it will be safe for mass gatherings to take place this summer, or indeed whether we will reach Step 4 on the Government’s roadmap out of COVID-19 restrictions on 21 June, we could not risk incurring costs for the event that may otherwise need cancelling closer to the time.” 

Around 21,000 people attended the Havering Show in 2019 which featured British alternative rock band Toploader and reggae superstars Aswad.

Bands Heatwave and Curiosity Killed the Cat starred in the 2018 event. 

“Our events team, sponsors and exhibitors work hard to put on this show, and each year thousands of residents come along and enjoy themselves,” added Cllr White. 

“We will be looking at other ways at bringing the community together when restrictions are fully lifted in line with government guidelines and public health advice.”
