Toyah: Up Close & Personal
Fairkytes Arts Centre, Hornchurch.
Household name, pop icon, TV presenter, and stage/screen actress (Calamity Jane, Cabaret, Peter Pan, Jubilee, Quadophenia) Toyah returns to Fairkytes Live with her acoustic, Up Close and Personal show.
This is a unique chance to experience Toyah in an intimate setting where music and stories take centre stage. This lively, entertaining and revealing show features Toyah performing an unplugged set of classic songs, while recalling stories from her colourful career. From filming pop videos on horseback at 5am in the morning to acting alongside Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier, this is a show which lifts the lid on life in the entertainment business.
Talented guitarists, Chris Wong and Colin Hinds accompany Toyah on meticulous acoustic versions of It’s A Mystery, Thunder In The Mountains, I Want To Be Free and Good Morning Universe through to Sensational, a track used recently on a national TV advertising campaign starring Patsy Kensit.
