Beautiful photos from Hackney Empire + NEW Spring tour dates

Hello lovelies, 

Spring is springing! 

Here are some beautiful photographs and some memories from a glorious evening at The Hackney Empire. Thank you to everyone who came to the launch of Hollie’s latest book ‘Lobster’ - It was an amazing experience, Hackney Empire is such a wonderful and legendary London venue. Everyone was so lovely and so kind, I noticed lots of smiles backstage and behind the scenes. Thank you everyone, it was such a beautiful audience. I was totally blown away by the performances of both Hollie McNish and Michael Pedersen, sending BIGlove to you two super-talented big-hearted beauties. Such a big energy. Magic. Synchronicity. Rousing support and solidarity for Diane Abbott both inside the packed theatre and outside the Hackney Town Hall.

Here’s some pics of sound-checking and mucking about backstage and onstage … oh for people asking, lately I have been wearing my pin-stripe suit by King & Allen, truly exquisite tailors, highly recommend. Photos here are a mix by Chris Beschi and Shaun Murawski. I love the photos of us watching each others sets. It really was a magic evening, thank you. Tickets are now on sale for some of my first shows of the book tour. I'll keep adding here as I go along... please remember to wash your hands, eat your greens and take care, see you out here and in there! Xxsg
