Stand-up and music at our garden festival!

Here are two more of the wonderful women who will be appearing at our garden festival:

Singer Phoebe Robinson and stand-up Louisa Theobald.

Louisa is a comedian and actress who enjoys spinning her trials and tribulations into anecdotes worthy of an audience. She has been a semi finalist in the 'So you think you're funny' and 'Funny Women' national competitions and won the 'Guardian Reader's Stand-up' award.
'Lovable daftness' - The Guardian
'Buoyantly likeable...inspired' - Spoonfed

Phoebe is a 16-year-old musician from North Walsham, who combines a traditional folk guitar style with captivating lyrics and a warm alto voice. After falling in love with the style of singer-songwriter Laura Marling, Phoebe taught herself the guitar and began recording herself singing and playing covers of her favourite songs, which she uploaded onto her Soundcloud page to share with her friends. Having recently started writing her own material, Phoebe takes inspiration from Bob Dylan, the poetry of Emily Dickinson and the angry feminists of the seventies, and explores themes such as femininity, love, nature, and good old-fashioned teenage angst in her music. Phoebe will be releasing her debut EP of her original music this summer.
