An Evening with

Lesley Garrett

9 July · Friday · 7:30pm

PROGRAMME

Lesley Garrett CBE, soprano, musician, broadcaster and media personality, needs little introduction; she’s a national treasure! Visiting JAM on the Marsh for the first time, Lesley is joined by Festival Curator, Anna Tilbrook, for a sparkling evening of song, reminiscence and chat. Lesley has performed across the world, including throughout Europe, the United States, Australia, Russia, Brazil, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan and South Korea. She is one of the few singers to have truly crossed genres; from opera (Glyndebourne, ENO, WNO) to pop (with Bryan Ferry, Eurhythmics and Mick Hucknall seeing in Millennium Eve) via musicals (The Sound of Music and Carousel). Lesley will introduce her music alongside behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes giving us a unique insight into her life on the stage.

History

New Romney was once a thriving port, with the harbour adjacent to St Nicholas' Church, in front of which a mooring ring can still be seen. In 1287 a storm changed the coastline dramatically and the port was destroyed, the town now being more than a mile from the sea. Four feet of silt were deposited inside the Church and around, which accounts for it being lower than the surrounding area. Large numbers of visitors come annually, attracted by the unique history and architecture; the church is one of the finest in the Diocese of Canterbury.
