The Blossom Appeal

Music, magic and comedy at our third cabaret night

IMG_149227 June 2013: Now established as a firm favourite on the Blossom calendar, the Blossom Appeal cabaret night in June combined fine dining at the White Hart at Lydgate with music, magic and comedy.

Our smorgasboard of fantastic entertainment included…

  • Classically trained singer-songwriter Sophie Barrett performing her own beautiful interpretations of classic songs from Fleetwood Mac to Alicia Keys and Billie Holiday.
  • Illusionist Ian Lavin delivered another spellbinding set of magical mayhem.
  • Musical theatre actress Abi Finley performed “The problem with finding an acting role…” – a hilarious insight into the crazy world of auditions – and revealed some fascinating back stage secrets from her career in both spoken word and song.  Abi’s first break was her appearance on the BBC Reality TV programme How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?, created by Andrew Lloyd Webber  to find someone to play Maria von Trapp in The Sound Of Music.  She was subsequently cast by Tim Rice as Fiona in Blondel at the Pleasance Theatre, London and Serena in Fame on a UK national tour, and has been widely praised for her singing voice and acting skills.
