Presented in association with Clive Conway Productions, Britain’s most popular soprano will be at The New Victoria Theatre, Main Auditorium, Newcastle-under-Lyme for an evening of song, reminiscence, and chat. Lesley will tell of her behind-the-scenes stories which will give audiences an insight into her life on the stage. With over 30 years of experience performing in the worlds of opera, musicals, television, radio, and concerts, Lesley has won both critical acclaim and the affection of music lovers and fans from across the world.

Accompanying Lesley will be Anna Tilbrook, who is one of Britain’s most exciting pianists, with a considerable reputation in song recitals and chamber music.
