Lydia Rae - Female Singer - Camden Town, London Event Location: Little Haywood Event Type: Pub Entertainment 25th June 2023
Lydia performed at our venue and went down a storm. 1st on the list for easy listening music. No better way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon listening to the restful songs performed by Lydia. This is the second time she has performed for us and will not be the last. An asset for any easy listening music venue.

Lydia has a beautiful voice. I was completely blown away the first time I heard her sing! She often performs at "All About Eve" bar in Camden and for me it's always the highlight of the evening!! One of the best singers I've ever heard!
