Miss Hope Springs: The Ex-Vegas Showgirl Comes to Wilton’s

SEEN’s favourite cabaret venue Wilton’s Music Hall is to be graced by none other than international cabaret star Miss Hope Springs.

SEEN’s favourite cabaret venue Wilton’s Music Hall is to be graced by none other than international cabaret star Miss Hope Springs. No stranger to the bright lights of Hollywood, Hope will be bringing her one-woman show to Wilton’s in August, showcasing witty and moving self-penned songs, and tales from her glitteringly disastrous life.

Version 2

Still sporting the sequins in which she departed the Pink Pelican Casino in 1972, Hope will bring her unique blend of pop, romantic rhumbas, sassy bossa novas and smouldering torch songs, to London’s demi-monde. Performing live at the piano, and accompanied by her ‘Hot Jazz Combo’ on sizzling percussion and throbbing double bass, Hope’s ‘Ritz to the pits’ fall from grace highlights her laugh-out-loud-move-you-to-tears performance, truly marking this ex-Vegas showgirl out as the capital’s biggest cabaret sensation.

Hope is the towering blonde alter-ego of Ty Jeffries, who came into being after a childhood spent with Hollywood royalty Fred Astaire and Shirley MacLaine, striding the catwalks of Milan and Paris as a teen and spending time on film sets with his father; actor and director Lionel Jeffries.

All these experiences helped to create the irrepressible Miss Hope Springs, whose shows have received rave reviews at top cabaret hotspots from London to New York. Dubbed a ‘tragi-comic genius’ by celebrity fan Julian Clary, SEEN knows that Miss Hope Springs is one sparkling chanteuse that you definitely don’t want to miss.

Dates: 9th, 10th, 11th August
Time: 7:30pm
Tickets:  £10 – £20
Ages: 18+
