The first of a series of evening cabarets kicked off at Fellowship House, in Willifield Way, the Suburb, last night.

Singer Francoise Pierre-Geller, narrator Gordon Griffin and pianist Gloria Moss performed a programme of songs by late French singer Edith Piaf, entitled Mademoiselle de Paris.

Tickets for the special evening included a three-course meal and a glass of French wine. There was also an open mic session following the cabaret performance

Ms Moss, co-founder of Cabaret Events, responsible for organising the event, said: “It was like a cabaret in France. It was an event which brought the community together. I think that’s quite rare in the time we live in.

“Music is a great glue, it can bring people together - a bit of wine helps as well!”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
