Christine Bovill will perform a musical homage to one of France’s most endearing icons Edith Piaf at The Castle in Wellingborough on Saturday.

This powerful musical celebrates some of Piaf’s best known songs, threaded with her story, and Christine’s own remarkable journey in the world of chanson.

An award-winning songwriter in her own right, Bovill has toured throughout Europe with her self-penned homage to the Little Sparrow, appearing on live television and, most recently, on BBC Radio 4’s series Soul Music.

During her sold out run at the Famous Spiegeltent at this year’s Edinburgh Festival, Bovill realised a lifelong dream when she shared the stage with Charles Dumont, great friend of Piaf and, most famously, composer of Non, Je ne Regrette Rien.

They performed several songs together to close the show. Piaf was awarded the Fringe laurels for Total Sell Out Show 2011 and 2012.

Tickets for Piaf cost £18 by calling 01933 270 007 .
