Stalwart cabaret and variety legend Anita Harris will entrance LMF visitors
Anita Harris will remind us why she is one of the UK’s most loved entertainers when she appears at Looe Music Festival on Sunday 25th September. With a breathtaking career spanning over fifty years Anita Harris was spotted on a London ice rink aged just 15. She was instantly whisked away to Las Vegas to appear, three times a night at one of the city’s top cabaret venues.
Returning to the UK she went on to work with The Cliff Adams Singers, appeared in two Carry On films, graced the top of the pop charts with hits such as ‘Just Loving You’ and ‘Anniversary Waltz’, became a pantomime legend as Peter Pan, starred in Cats in the West End for 2 years and featured in 7 Royal Command Performances.
Anita has never stopped performing and has worked alongside legendary names in the world of entertainment such as Harry Secombe, Phil Silvers, Morecambe and Wise, Tommy Cooper, magician David Nixon and Clive Dunn to name but a tiny handful.
Today Anita is still very much the darling of the entertainment world. Christmas 2014 saw her in pantomime at the fabulous Grand Opera House, York and toured the country’s top theatres with her own show throughout 2015.
