When Martin Toal suggested adding a violinist to the repertoire for our Ryman League Annual Ball, it did not occur to me for one minute that we would all be blown away and mesmerised by the performance of Sally Potterton on the night. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a vibrant, talented artiste.

Sally performed at the Vogue Gold Night Out event in our Aquascutum Westfield store in November 2014. She provided the perfect entertainment and really set the mood for the evening. She was a pleasure to work with, completely professional, poised, and absolutely gorgeous! It was so refreshing to hear classical renditions of popular chart music and you could tell the customers truly enjoyed her performance from start to finish. A pleasure to work with.
