About The Event
6:45pm: Pre-Concert Talk 'Judy Garland in London' with Gary Horrocks
Victoria Nicol, vocalist
Henry Brennan, piano
On June 22nd 1969 Judy Garland died at home in London, a city she loved. She was tired, wrote her daughter Liza Minnelli, “a flower that gives joy and beauty to the world and then wilts away”. On June 27th 1970 the Judy Garland Club (established with Judy’s blessing and approval) organised a memorial service in London exactly one year after Judy’s funeral in New York. Her close friend, the Reverend Peter Delaney, presided over the service at St Marylebone Parish Church. Dame Anna Neagle, Evelyn Laye, Beatrice Dawson, Hattie Jacques and Danny La Rue were among the celebrities in attendance and Lionel Bart supplied the flowers.
Victoria Nicol and friends lead us in a tribute to the great lady! Come prepared to sing along! The performance will feature many of Garland’s most famous songs including ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘The Man That Got Away’, ‘Get Happy’, and ‘The Trolley Song’.
