Dolly Parton's 9 to 5 The Musical comes to the West End!
Dolly Parton is known for her fantastic songwriting ability and her signature vocals but above all this she is a business lady, a very good one. For years she has tried her hand at a number of creative projects and had her fingers in many different kinds of pies.

Kacey Musgraves dazzles audiences on the Oh What A World Tour!

I’ve been a fan of Kacey’s for a long time and have seen her perform both here on multiple occasions and in the States but in the past year or so she seems to have become slightly more reserved on stage and even in York last week she seemed quieter than when she toured back in 2015. However last night was differen
