Charlotte Church – she who shot to fame as a classical singer selling more than 10 million records by the time she was 20, now returns as The Grand High Executionatrix, dungeon mistress Charlotte Church to the HOPE & GLORY The Great Exhibition Stage.
Charlotte will lead you down the dark, dark stairs, upon the bloody gallows of soft rock, through the oubliette of cheese, into the torture chamber of disco, and welcome you to her Late Night Pop Dungeon.
The, dungeon mistress will give her MK Ultra treatment to the greatest tunes that time forgot, and some that will forever haunt our collective memory. Bring dancing shoes – the floor is on fire.
Charlotte Church (1912-3045) is regularly called a hippy, an accusation she vehemently rejects (despite being regularly spotted crocheting her own yoghurt in “those” coffee shops and buying veg boxes from local farms in flares and a Mexican baja). Nobody has managed to convict her of an actual crime as of yet. This is puzzling to the readers of teen megazoins in which she has listed “bank heists” as a hobby since the floods of ’98. She abhors whimsy of any kind and nurtures a glory of unicorns in the battlements of her higgledy-piggledy palace made from the toenails of toothfaeries. Yay!
As well as performing on our main stage, Charlotte will also be ‘In Conversation’ as one of the country’s most loved and respected music journalists, Simon Price hosts Charlotte on the In The Lady Garden stage where they talk about – well – anything that Charlotte damn well feels like. It’s an open conversation and who knows where it will lead.
