Festival Details - "Nicky Haslam 'Moonlight and Love Songs'"...

Following three years of sell-out shows at The Pheasantry in Kings Road, the renowned interior designer, author and columnist returns with a very special, festive Christmas show entitled 'Moonlight and Love Songs'. A lifelong devotee of Manhattan’s supper-club, Nicky will be entertaining his audience with some favourite songs by Cole Porter, Jerry Herman, Rodgers and Hart and Irving Berlin, along with that of their Broadway contemporaries, some of it hauntingly familiar, some less well known, but all in the spirit of Christmas.

Nicky first learned many of these songs when laid up with polio for several years in childhood. “We had all those albums of 78s. I was word-perfect in Ethel Merman by the time I was eight” he says. 

Living in New York in the 1960s, he personally knew many of the city’s musical icons from Porter, Rogers and Hammerstein, Comden and Green, to Sinatra, Joe Bushkin and Duke Ellington. He heard great cabaret artists such as Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong and Bobby Short and his particular favourite Lee Wiley; he also danced to the flawless sounds of Lester Lanin and Xavier Cugat.  

Nicky, who was named in the world’s top 100 designers by the Architectural Digest and has designed the décor for many celebrity and high profile clients around the world, has been described as having ‘a voice like fine claret: dry, sophisticated and mellow but slightly spicy.’  He performed at the launch of the Savoy's Beaufort Bar to an audience that included Kate Moss, Jerry Hall and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Nicky will be accompanied by his brilliant trio. Nicky Haslam is directed and accompanied by maestro Tom Wakeley. Together they have played many public and private engagements both abroad and in the United Kingdom, including in front of Her Majesty the Queen

For an evening of beautiful songs, entertaining and hilarious anecdotes, mixed with a  lot of name-dropping, Nicky Haslam’s shows are really not to be missed. And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit then spending a very intimate evening with Nicky. Tickets always sell out fast so don't delay
