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
