EVESHAM’s Regal Cinema will play host to popular actress and musician Martine McCutcheon for an evening of up close and personal memories of her career so far.
Martine first found fame as Tiffany Mitchell in Eastenders in the 1990s, before releasing her platinum-selling debut solo album ‘You, Me & Us’ in 1999 containing the number one single ‘Perfect Moment’.
West End and TV roles followed and along the way she became the nation’s sweetheart. In 2003, Martine memorably played Natalie opposite Hugh Grant in ‘Love Actually.’
Now 41, happily married and mother of a 2 year old, the time felt right for her to return to the studio.
Martine has co-written most of the songs on the new album ‘Lost and Found’ with her husband, the multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Jack McManus, and she has never sounded better!
The album is a deeply personal record that deals with everything from relationships to an illness that saw her unable to work.
“Life brought this album about very gradually,” she said.
“It was a really unconscious thing; I started writing the songs at a time in my life when I’d lost everything.”
The show will be a chance to hear Martine perform songs from ‘Lost and Found’ in a stripped back setting, as well as some of her previous hits and fan-favourites.
There will also be lots of anecdotes from her long and varied career, plus a chance to ask some questions.
Up Close and Personal with Martine McCutcheon will take place on Wednesday, May 16 and doors open at 7pm ahead of the show at 8pm.
Tickets are £22 each via www.theregal.ac or the box office on 01386 421007. Each ticket subject to a £3 service charge.
