Bolstering the London Borough of Newham’s cultural output for 2020, later this month the borough will host four nights of free musical performances. Taking place from 15 to 18 August, ‘Under The Stars‘ will take place in East Ham’s Central Park, covering musical styles from jazz to orchestral.
On 15 August the park hosts an evening of jazz, with acid jazz combo Incognito, The Brand New Heavies, Ciyo Brown and DJ sets from James Anthony and Ash Selector
On 16 August, it’s the turn of Asian culture with Eastern Beats, which will feature fire-eaters, Bollywood dance routines and live sets presented by Kiss FM’s DJ Neeve
On 17th, boogie nights are back with a set from Boney M and Liz Mitchell, Imagination featuring Leee John, The Real Thing and the best of funk and disco from the 70s and 80s
On Sunday 18 August things get a little more sophisticated when the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra put in an appearance – they will be performing pieces by Brahms, Grieg and others. Under The Stars will close with a firework spectacular at the end of the evening.
