“The greatest star that never was sings the greatest hits that never were...Unmissable!”
“Darkly comic songs that would give Tim Minchin a run for his money.”
“Nostalgic vaudevillian charm with its blend of skilfully-crafted musical number, camp anecdote, and joyously decadent performance... An absolute delight.”
“A character of uncanny comic accuracy, blending evocative musical numbers with a hint of Vegas. Exquisitely funny and remarkably engaging.”

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), her interesting career choices ( she once turned down the role of Samantha in ‘I Dream of Genii’ for a spot on a winter cruise...around Siberia!) as 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? and was the first non-classical artist to play London’s Wigmore Hall in 2017. 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 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 the Great American and British Songbooks.
December 2020. Ty recently composed a musical commission for Norwich Puppet Theatre’s filmed production of Roald Dahl’s Rotten Rhymes, has been commissioned to write a song about Ava Gardner for the Ava Gardner Trust. Christmas Agogo! starring Miss Hope Springs came back to Crazy Coqs with two sold out shows in Dec.
