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+

Somewhere Over the Reignbow: LGBT Rights Protected in Queen’s Speech

With all the recent sombre news, coupled with the feeling that communities in cities are experiencing particular oppression, it is indeed heartening to hear the following words in the Queen’s speech: “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, …

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
