THE Seagull Theatre will be flying high this weekend as the Pakefield venue is filled with the sounds of the 1930s.
Tomorrow Katrina Beckford returns to the birthplace of her career with her moving and powerful interpretation of the life and music of Billie Holiday.
God Bless the Child - an evening with Billie Holiday sees Katrina, as Billie Holiday, take the audience on an intimate and personal journey, from a misspent youth in Baltimore through to the lavish jazz joints of 1930's Harlem.
The show received rave reviews at the Edinburgh Festival last year and returns to the Seagull by popular demand after impressing audiences in October.
