Zizzi Sessions Continue in 2011!
The Central St Giles Sessions are still very much in full (jazz) swing, and to keep you going throughout January, we have some unbelievably talented people flexing their musical muscles for you lucky diners.
Our beautiful and talented host, the Grammy nominated Becki Biggins, will be there to introduce the acts and, as per usual, she’ll be opening the floor up to those diners with nerves of steel, to get up and showcase what they’ve got in their locker and ‘Sing for their Supper’, with the cost of the meal donated to The Prince’s Trust.
So who have we got to come in January?
