Pure Bassey – A Tribute to Shirley Bassey
June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£15
Pure Bassey is a dynamic, high energy theatre production that is widely accepted as the foremost tribute to Dame Shirley Bassey. It is performed by the award-winning Julia Martin, and has been delivered to audiences around the world, with standing ovations on every occasion. After appearing on Sky Television Julia was described as ‘Phenomenal & Outstanding’, and in 2018 & 2019 Julia was presented with the accolade of the UK’s No1 Shirley Bassey tribute by the National Tribute Music Awards. Julia is also the only DSB tribute in the world that uses a collection of stunning original Bassey gowns throughout her show. These gowns were worn by Shirley throughout her glittering career, and include the world-famous Gypsy Gown, created by Douglas Darnell. These gowns create the illusion of Shirley herself being on stage, and between them they span over 60 years of Shirley’s success.
Pure Bassey has been described by theatre audiences as totally authentic in every way, capturing Shirley’s incredible stage presence, power ballads, and magnetism, whilst delivering a spectacular evening of entertainment, that no true Bassey fan will want to miss. Dedication and meticulous attention to detail is what makes this theatre performance so special, and Julia’s amazing ability to mimic not just the voice, but also the Bassey mannerisms, and extravagance of gowns will leave you thinking that you have seen the original artist. This spectacular production not only brings to life the inspirational story behind Shirley’s glittering life, but also takes the audience on a musical journey through the outstanding singing career of this iconic legend. With meticulous attention to detail, Julia will weave her magic and deliver a show that makes the audience feel that Shirley herself is actually in the theatre.
