Join award-winning musical comedy performer Hannah Brackenbury as she presents a joyful and poignant musical tribute to the late, great comedy genius Victoria Wood.

Winner of Best Show (Funny Women Awards 2019) and Best of the Festival (Brighton Fringe 2018), this hilarious and uplifting hour-long show celebrates the life and musical work of a much-missed British comedy icon.

Featuring a generous helping of classic Victoria Wood songs including 'Pam', 'Bum to the World', 'Music & Movement' and the unforgettable 'Ballad of Barry & Freda', deftly interwoven with Brackenbury's own original songs, witty poems and tender monologues written in memory and celebration of her life-long comedy hero.

Hannah Brackenbury is an established cabaret performer based in the seaside city of Brighton & Hove. She was a finalist at the Musical Comedy Awards 2016 and Pride's Got Talent Cabaret 2018. She is also the musical director with the UK's longest-running LGBTQ+ impro troupe, The Short & Girlie Show.
