Overview

Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the life and work of Charlie Bicknell, cabaret artist, actress and circus eccentric. 1970…  1980 - last week.

She is survived by Louise Innes, ‘internationally acclaimed’ Opera singer and suspiciously alive cabaret partner. Accompanied by a grieving David Harrod on the piano (but then he’s always miserable) and her mourning gardener Will Robinson, eye-candy for the congregation. Reverend Jonathan Booth will deliver his eulogy, inspired by The Seven Ages of Man.  Illustrated robustly with the help of Tim Minchin, Jacques Brel, Billie Eilish and Mozart, among others.

 

Charlie Bicknell became a household name playing 'Delilah' in BBC2's This Life and subsequently starred as 'Scout' in Ben Elton's West End hit Popcorn. Continuing to work as an actress for the National Theatre and rep around the UK, Charlie then moved into cabaret and circus, performing all over the world.

Louise Innes is a versatile operatic mezzo soprano, who has sung at Covent Garden Opera House, Scottish Opera, La Scala, Festival Hall, and 10 Downing Street to name but a few.  She has recently been performing with Charlie in London’s Crazy Coq, Chelsea Arts Club, St James Theatre and all over the South West.
