Ayla Hill is back with another showstopping musical soiree- just in time for Christmas. Ayla has been spellbound by the magic of singing and the power of music for as long as she can remember, and will be bringing her own unique mix of original songwriting, jazzy sounds of the Golden Age, pop classics and ballads, and the magnetic sounds of the West End back to the Bedford stage. The net proceeds from this event will be going to the St. George’s Hospital Charity oncology fund, a charity close to Ayla’s heart.

Ayla is a London based singer, mother of three young children and used to work as a city lawyer. Ayla started learning piano at school, and then re-discovered the joy of playing after her husband gifted her a piano when their son was born. Ayla was always involved in drama and musical theatre productions at school and university, and since becoming a Mum has sung in musical theatre choirs, worked with top industry vocal coaches and practices her craft at open mic nights.

Ayla’s artistic journey took an exciting turn during lockdown when she discovered the joy of songwriting, and it was a dream come true to share some of those songs at her debut solo show at the Bedford in March 2023. The live recordings of her cancer songbook collection from that night can be enjoyed on all music streaming platforms with all streaming proceeds going to Cancer Research UK.

Ayla will be joined by guest artist and West End actress Kate Batter (https://morwennapreston.com/?s=kate+batter), Musical Director and pianist Nathan Martin (www.letmesingandimhappy.com), Ben Turner on guitar and bass (www.benturnermusic.co.uk), James O’Carroll www.jamesocarroll.co.uk on drums, and Claudia Martindale on violin.
