The Anthony Newley Story is a wonderful musical journey through the life and times of this actor, singer, pop star, composer and cultural icon.  The show is presented and performed by Newley’s biographer and friend, the International actor and singer GARTH BARDSLEY (star of The Phantom of the Opera; The Best of Times).  He is joined by the remarkable jazz pianist, SANDRA LAMBERT and her musicians.  A funny, moving, fascinating night out will be had by all.  A real ‘feel-good’ show for all ages.

A classic ‘Black Tie’ evening saluting the songs of Newley, rediscovered and reinvented by GARTH and SANDRA in their own inimitable style.  Together with the band they recapture the glamour of the Las Vegas cabaret lounge era, which Newley made so very much his own.
