High Priestess of Hair Spray Mari Wilson, and her eight-piece band The New Wilsations, present a Christmas cracker of a show. Mari will be performing her hits, ‘Just What I’ve Always Wanted’, ‘Cry Me A River’, ‘Beat the Beat’ and many more favourites, along with tunes of yuletide yesterdays.
Her very special guests The Mike Flowers Pops will be adding some sartorial elegance and groovy melodies to the party. The lounge legends hit the charts with their easy-listening version of ‘Wonderwall’ and their covers of ‘Light My Fire’ and ‘Don’t Cry For Me Argentina’ also entered the Hit Parade.
To kick off the evening, the fabulous Meyer Dancers will add an extra touch of glittering panache with their disco class and unique 1960s Go-go dancing. Also aboard the sleigh-ride is snappy dresser and VP of Vinyl DJ Martin Green, spinning some festive 45’s to get you in the mood for boppin’ around the Christmas tree.

Wilsations Musical Director Richard Cottle will guide singers, horns and a red-hot rhythm section through sackfuls of merry harmonies and soul-stirring tidings of great joy. There’ll be Singalong-a-Christmas songs, competition prizes and plenty more seasonal surprises.
Dressing up is encouraged – it’s Christmas after all – so rummage through your gladrags and doll yourself up with something cheery and bright to ensure your holidays go with a swing, as you join the Very Mari Christmas party.
Mari Wilson’s Christmas Party is at The Apex on Monday 11 December at 7.30pm. See www.theapex.co.uk or ring 01284 758 000 for more information or to book tickets.
