A FINALIST on the BBC's The One And Only is set to appear in a community festival this weekend alongside 1970s pop greats Hot Chocolate.

Lionel Ritchie tribute act Moni Tivony is to perform on the main stage at the Trust Thamesmead Community Festival in Birchmere Park this Saturday as well as You Sexy Thing group Hot Chocolate.

Hot Chocolate's Patrick Olive said they are looking forward to playing the Trust Thamesmead Festival because of the audience, adding: "They are always appreciative and there's always a real buzz about playing in your own home country."

Also lined up for the main stage are Michelle Gayle, T2 featuring Addictive, Booty Luv and The Blue Brothers Uncut.

Winners of the festival's own talent competition, T-Factor, Myztikal, Annastasia Baker, Simple Crush, Derry Shellam and Sam Coomber will also be performing in front of an estimated 20,000 festival goers.

Trust Thamesmead's chair Jackie Smith said: "Thamemead has so much to be proud of, I have no doubt that many of those performing will go on to great careers in music and dance."

The free festival runs from 10am until 8pm, has eight separate attractions including a Hawaiian Beach to banish those holiday blues, an activity and sports zone to keep the kids amused and a health zone, where you can kick-back and relax with a cocktail.
