Revisiting her lost 1972 TV special (to this day considered an unaired classic), join down-on-her-luck comedy cabaret chanteuse, Miss Hope Springs, and special guest, Gary Bland, as they unwrap a glittering array of original seasonal songs all sprinkled with a fine frosting of vintage-Vegas glitz.
Expect fabulously festive numbers performed live at the piano and, if Hope gets enough eggnog down her, she might spill the beans on her 'Ritz-to the-pits' life and loves in this hysterical trip down her somewhat potholed, memory lane.
Fresh from his recent stint at The National Theatre in the Sam Mendez directed Lehman Trilogy, Bland also appeared in the Old Vic's award-winning Epidemic, was featured in Cinderella at Drury Lane, and appeared in the film version of Les Misérables. He is also best known for his one man shows about the life and work of Tony Newley and Matt Monro.

✶✶✶✶✶ "A sparkling Christmas show filled with festive songs so finely sculpted you'd be forgiven for thinking they'd long-since entered the classic Christmas songbook!" - Gscene Magazine
"Bland's voice, rich in texture, can croon all the way from the sweet and mellow to the grand and striking" - Cabaret Scenes
