Lili la Scala: Songs to Make You Smile @ Croft Hall, Hungerford
Jun 30 @ 8:00 pm – 9:45 pm

With her vintage pin-up looks, sky high heels and razor-sharp wit, Lili la Scala can regularly be found delighting audiences the world over with her captivating cabaret repertoire. It’s easy to see why the little Diva with the big voice, nicknamed the Songbird of Trafalgar Square, has become a sell-out favourite worldwide.

Lili’s latest show, the award-winning ‘Songs To Make You Smile’, is an enthralling, upbeat medley of wartime classics, show tunes and decidedly bright-and-breezy numbers from yesteryear bound to put a spring in your step. From American composers Irving Berlin and Cole Porter to British legends Gracie Fields and Vera Lynn, and with a splash of George Formby thrown in for good measure, Lili offers traditional tunes delivered with cabaret sass. Her huge voice and equally big personality won’t fail to leave you cheered.

“Ravishing retro glamour” – **** The Telegraph

“Lili is as delightful, delicious and de-lovely as the songs she sings” – Australian Stage
