Wartime in the Cotswolds 2017


I am overjoyed to announce that I will be singing at this fantastic 1940’s railway event this year!

Having not been to this particular event before, I am excited to see all the sites and sounds myself. Wartime in the Cotswolds starts at Cheltenham Racecourse station…and luckily for you, that is where I will be starting my singing sets!

9.30, 10.30 and 11.30 at Cheltenham Racecourse.

1.30 and 2.30 at Gotherington.

Remembrance Sunday


I am actually free on this date, after many years performing at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre. If anyone needs a daytime 1940’s singer in the local area  (Stratford upon Avon, Warwick, Leamington Spa, Birmingham, Evesham)  for Remembrance services or after service events then please get in touch.

Battles For Victory this Weekend!


I cannot wait to perform at this event! I will be doing a burlesque dance at the Saturday evening Dance to Victory and then a singing set on Sunday at the main event. Viv the Spiv, Swingtime Sweethearts and many more well known entertainers will be there!

Thank You to the Masonic Lodge


I wanted to say a huge thank you for the warm reception that greeted me on Saturday. I was not only made to feel like part of the family, but also got watered and fed on the head table. It was truly an honour to sing for you all and I hope to see you soon!

The Craft Fair

We had such a wonderful time at Warwickshire Exhibition Centre last Sunday! It was the first time I had been and I was very impressed with the space and creative table displays. It was hard not to get tempted by some of the goodies on the stalls as I was there to make money not spend it, but still treated myself to a lovely hand knitted top which was a ridiculously good deal.

Along with my pincushion cups and hair clips, Mr Mew had brought along a few of his handmade wooden toys and a couple of light boxes. We had also made some cute bird feeders which proved to be rather popular!

As well as selling our beloved crafts, I also sang some Christmas tunes and vintage songs to get everyone in the mood. I nearly laughed out loud when the most adorable little tot you have ever seen started jigging around like a dashboard hula girl to Santa Claus is Coming to Town! It was quite chilly, but adrenaline kept me reasonably warm for the most part and only my toes seemed to suffer the feeling of loss of life. I wore a wonderful new dress that I am utterly thrilled with, but cannot reveal where I got it as of yet!

In the end I sold 2 pincushion cups (My favourite one (the rabbit in lettuce leaves) and a bird in a nest of pins, a pincushion shoe, 3 pincushion corsages and 3 bird feeders so not bad at all! Next up is a vintage and crafts fair at Hatton Park Hall THIS Sunday (9th Dec) where I will be singing and selling some of my vintage clothing collection! The fun never ends!
