West End performers will bring an uplifting ensemble of melodies to the grounds of Gilbert White’s House & Gardens, on Friday July 8, at 7pm.
The ‘Summer Daze’ performance includes classic tunes such as Summertime, Valerie and Here Comes the Sun! The audience is encouraged to bring their picnic and kick off their shoes to this relaxing mix.
The star duo delivering the performance are John Donovan and Alison Carter-Nesbitt. Mr. Donovan’s career spans from being the musical director for ‘Mamma Mia the Party’ at London’s O2 arena to being the pianist for Dame Shirley Bassey, including at her performance at this year’s BAFTAs.
Exhibiting her outstanding voice for the evening, Alison Carter-Nesbitt has had an equally illustrious career, including performing at The Royal Variety Show, The Olivier Awards and alongside stars such as Orlando Bloom and Bonnie Langford.
Mr. Donovan and Ms. Carter-Nesbitt have most recently collaborated on ‘Lockdown Lounge’ jazz sessions, providing live-streamed entertainment for people during the pandemic.
Bringing the duo together again for this ‘Summer Daze’ performance is the local theatre producer Simon Downing, who is a resident of Selborne, near Alton.
Tickets for the event are £15 and can be purchased from Gilbert White’s House & Gardens website.
