Maggie Macall’s Summer Soirée on lower deck

Yes, it’s that time of year we all love to hate, isn’t it…it’s hotter than hell, the pollen is making everyone sneeze their inside all over you (when you were on the bus this morning) and to top it all that heinous time lord shines down on us all relentlessly, and it’s al “Look at me, I’m the Sun”. Well, you can shake off al those justifiable UK summer blues and cash them in for a one way ticket to a SIZZLING SUMMER SOIRÉE with yours truly - MAGGIE MACALL! Whilst on a charming vessel, I shall be knocking back G&T’s, singing some of my favourite songs and telling a few golden stories from my career in (and let’s not, just NOT forget it, let’s NEVER forget it) the WEST END, the BROADWAY and the HOLLYWOOD MOVIES. I’ll be with my gorgeous House Orchestra - THE FREDDIE TAPNER JAZZ BAND and a few SPECIAL GUESTS, friends of mine from stage and screen. It’s simply not be missed! MM x

h.o.f.n.a.r. free summer party

This year h.o.f.n.a.r. are taking over the Battersea Barge for their annual FREE summer party – It doesn’t matter if you have ever been away with them before or not (it’s a great opportunity to meet the team). If you have been along on their trips before then you’ll know this is the time to reminisce, party and possibly tuck into a couple of glasses of rosé… or something… So come along on your own – or bring some friends and get this boat ROCKING with h.o.f.n.a.r.!

This year they are particularly excited that their mates from KingSurf are co-hosting the party and as a result this is set to be a belter.

Music is being provided by Zuri Aura – who have not only been picked up by ‘BBC introducing‘ but completely took Morzine by storm last winter.

Before the party they are running a treasure/scavenger hunt around London that ends on the barge – click here for more info and make a #hofnarbigdayout of it!
