Under the Stars 2018

Almost 32,000 residents danced the night away across four nights of Newham Council’s music extravaganza Under the Stars at East Ham’s Central Park.

The event opened on Thursday with Levi Roots, Bitty McLean and The Skatalites with classic reggae, ska and lovers rock.

Friday attracted some of the best of British Asian talent around including Dr Zeus, local boy Mumzy Stranger, H-Dhami and Rameet Sandhu.

The crowd kept on moving on Saturday with classic dance tracks from Soul II Soul featuring Jazzie B and Caron Wheeler, tribute band Ultimate Earth, Wind & Fire, and Joel Culpepper.

Sunday rounded off the feast of music with a spectacular display of fireworks to the sound of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of John Rigby accompanied by soprano Sarah Redgwick and tenor Robyn Lyn Evans.

Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz and Newham councillors spent the four evenings having fun and dancing with residents. The Mayor said: “It was a fantastic event with an incredible range of artists. All four nights were eclectic and electric especially with the spectacular fireworks on Sunday which made everyone go wild! But of course the biggest stars were our residents who created an amazing atmosphere in response to the great musical performances. My thanks to all who came and for the money people donated to the Magpie Project in Forest Gate that supports mothers and children aged under five with housing needs. A great cause indeed!”
