Scorching temperatures helped boost attendance at the second day of the Mayor’s Newham Show.
The popular annual event, held at Central Park in East Ham, included a performance by CBeebies favourite Mr Bloom.
Highlights in the cabaret tent including Bella Kinetica’s roller skating and double trapeze acts, while on the main stage performers from Deborah Day Theatre School drew some of the biggest crowds.
Elsewhere there was an opportunity to discover life in the trenches by walking through a lifesized replica of a 1915 World War I trench, complete with realistic gunfire noise and smoke effects.
For a full review of the whole weekend, pick up a copy of the Recorder on Wednesday.
