Miss Hope Springs will leave you spellbound and very likely speechless with her scandalous showbiz tales of her life. ‘From the Ritz to the pits’. She’ll take you on a rollercoaster ride of romantic adventure (Liberace, Noel Coward and Barry Manilow were just a few of the guys who got away. Ponders her interesting career choices (she turned down the role of Samantha in Bewitched for a spot on a winter cruise...around Siberia!) And she intersperses her sparkling repartee with her unique blend of finger snapping pop, romantic rhumba rhythms and sassy Bossa Novas.

 

She’ll entertain you as she tinkles the ivories and shares excerpts from her many (mostly unreleased) albums including Je m’appelle Hope, Miss Hope Springs Swings with Strings, Das ist Miss Hope Springs and her 1972 'Memphis' album recorded in High Wycombe.

 

Join Miss Hope Springs as she unpacks her suitcase of dreams and takes you on a trip down her by now, somewhat potholed memory lane.

 

Miss Hope Springs has gathered a loyal and enthusiastic following since she burst onto the scene ten years ago. She has sold out prestigious cabaret venues and theatres both here and in the USA. She now lives with her husband Irving and his close personal pal Carlos in a camper van in Dungeness.

 

Miss Hope Spring’s alter-ego Mr Ty Jeffries is a prolific composer and writer whose critically acclaimed works are influenced and informed by the combination of his classical training and his love and knowledge of both the golden age of Hollywood (he grew up in the film industry and in fact once danced with Fred Astaire), and the Great American and British Songbooks.
