POSTPONED - Abergavenny Fashion, Arts and Music Extravaganza @ The Angel Hotel | Wales | United Kingdom

This fundraising evening, organised and hosted by Vivienne Sharman-Lewis and fellow Arts Abergavenny volunteers, promises to be a night to remember, with a sparkling reception and a taste of what the Abergavenny Arts Festival on Saturday June 20th will offer.

Featuring fashion, art, music, and entertainment, as well as exhibiting artists, an auction and raffle:
• Cai Williams will be headlining and will entertain us with some hits from the musicals. He was picked by Tom Jones on the Voice and has since made a name for himself fronting shows. He is also working on his new fashion TV series Style Matterz. He sang at the Cardiff International Film Festival, the Introbiz business after Ball at the Vale Resort, and will sing at the Wales Fashion week too!
• Jazz/Swing Singer, Russell Jones Jr, who was in Boys Aloud and was on the X Factor, has a Michael Bublé style and also performs songs from the Jungle book, which will appeal to our younger audience.
• Lovely flautist Kathy Batchelor, dancers and the Love Zimbabwe drummers.
• There will be four waves of fashion, opening with a performance piece by milliner/designer Andrea’s Closet, who will present a Fashion Fantasia to music by Mozart, then three more waves of local fashion, headed by Charles and Patricia Lester, Abergavenny’s own Fashion Royalty, who have dressed the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Streisand and Princess Michael of Kent, as well as the cast of Downton Abbey, and local luxury outlet Baroque Boutique, showing their fabulous wedding wear collection and prom gowns, and modern menswear outlet Revue.
• You’ll also have an opportunity to view some other leading fashion businesses and artists, who will exhibit and display around the room and you can even bid for, or win, some of their work in our auction and raffle.
