A previous event in 2017 called “Live at The London Cabaret Club” hosted by Gok Wan was a big success. £15,000 was raised for Pulmonary Fibrosis and this event hopes to create another fabulous evening of sparkling entertainment again on Sunday October 20th this year.
Audrey Jones trained at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama as a pianist in 1948 and then went on to become tofficial accompanist for many music festivals around the country. She went to to The Guildhall on a financial grant sponsored by Warwickshire County Council. She came from Rugby where her Mother Elsie and Father George sent her to a blind teacher to learn the piano. She had one special gift- not only was she a fine pianist, she was a superb accompanist accompanying many choirs including the London Welsh Male Voice Choir. She played at the Wigmore Hall and St Martins in the Fields and then became Head of Music at Woodmansterne Primary School in South London. The school choir was chosen (due to Grandma’s training) to support Barry Manilow in concert and on record. She had the ability to make anyone who sang for her enjoy what they were doing and her passion and enthusiasm for music was infectious. Hence the idea to put on a cabaret with an amazing line up in her memory!
