Alice Tovey One Night Only (Over Seven Nights)

Live and in performance for one night only! (Please note that the show takes place over seven nights. We cannot stress this enough.)

Many words have been used to describe Alice Tovey: insightful, award winning, melodic, pedantic. But one hypenated psuedo word stands above the rest: hit-maker. 

Alice Tovey is a cabaret performer, a feminist icon and a bottomless void that must be filled with applause. 

With the voice so powerful it makes grown men cry and beg for forgiveness, Alice is bringing it back to where it all began. We asked the audience, and they have voted on their favourite songs from the past six years. From 'Malice' to 'Garbage Monster' and beyond, we're taking a look back at all of your favourite bangers. This is sure to be a show worth taking off your trackie pants for. 

Joined by her long time co-writer and musical director Ned Dixon, together they're getting the band back together to celebrate the hits, and nothing but the hits. Featuring Alice's stage band The Apostles. 

'Tovey is at the forefront of a new age of comedy excellence. ★★★★★.' The Music

'She has a powerful voice and her creativity shines through in the wickedly clever lyrics of her songs. Tovey brings impressive emotional intelligence to her writing and performance.★★★★½'  Arts Hub

'Razor-sharp humour, and an unbelievable set of pipes to match. ★★★★' Theatre People
