Clare Teal - Festive Fiesta

Our very own Queen of Swing celebrates the music of her heroines, the leading lights of the jazz and big band world Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Judy Garland, Doris Day and many of their illustrious contemporaries.
The multi award winning singer and BBC Radio 2 broadcaster demonstrates also the influence these characters have had on her own acclaimed catalogue of work. Known for her knowledge and love of the Great American Songbook and more recently The Great British Songbook. With wit and warmth Clare tells outrageous anecdotes of their extraordinary lives and points to the future of Diva-dom with a few relevant originals and more modern day covers.

    Thanks Elsa and Ruth. I'll try and get there as soon as I can after 7.30. If you are able to save me a seat, that would be appreciated.

    Yes Elsa - think its a good idea to get there early. I imagine people may be there before 7.30 to get good seats. How about meeting at 7.20 outside? I may be wearing a red quilted coat if you are looking for me, but have turquoise in my hair so easy to spot!! I guess you won't be wearing your shades?!

      Good idea. See you at 7.20. I'll email you my number. No shades but the grey bit in the front of my hair is quite distinctive :-)

    Hi, is there a plan to meet up before the event? I think it starts at 8.

      Unfortunately I can't get there before 8 so will see everyone at the Chapel Arts Centre. Looking forward to it.

      Ok. As it's unreserved seating I'm planning to get there for when the doors open at 7.30. Does anyone else want to try and meet outside and get seats together. We'll try and save one for you too Barrie :-)

    Sorry. I'm performing myself that night so can no longer make it. I'm sure it will be a good night.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
