Festive tunes at Jazz in the Bar special

DIVA and vocal sensation Charlie Bicknell is a force to be reckoned with and will be singing a special Christmas programme at the Marine Theatre’s Jazz in the Bar on Sunday, December 8. 

 Charlie first became a household name playing Delilah in BBC2′s ‘This Life’, and subsequently starred as Scout in Ben Elton’s West End hit ‘Popcorn’.

While continuing to work as an actress for the National Theatre and rep around the UK, Charlie developed a parallel career singing jazz and her own brand of dark comic cabaret for a number of years.

Described by The Observer as “always delighting… with an amazing voice,” Charlie has worked with fabulous singers such as Marie Wilson, Earl Okin, Anita Wardell and Alison Limerick.

She has sung at London jazz venues Pizza on the Park, The Pheasantry and Ronnie Scotts, an accolade she shares with Philip Clouts who will be accompanying her at the piano.

Internationally, Charlie has performed at venues in Australia (notably the basement of Sydney Opera House and a giant car park in Adelaide), Hong Kong, Copenhagen, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

In addition to her extensive jazz repertoire from the likes of Cole Porter and Jerome Kern, expect some Christmas classics like ‘Santa Baby’, ‘The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot’, and of course Nat King Cole’s ‘Christmas Song’.

This Jazz in the Bar Christmas edition will be held at the Marine Theatre on Sunday, December 8, opening at 7.30pm for an 8.30pm start. 

Tickets cost £8 in advance or £12 on the door, and are available by calling 01297 442138 or visit www.marinetheatre.com. Please note, this event is upstairs and seating is limited.
