She’ll be joined by guest act Scott Lee as Engelburt Humperdink for what’s set to be a showstopper event.

International impersonator Paula delivers an incredibly accurate portrayal of Dame Shirley Bassey - endorsed by many of Bassey’s songwriters and producers, including Nikki Lamborn (Get the Party Started) and Andy Neve (Thank You for the Years).

Paula said: “I’m really looking forward to coming to Fleetwood and performing in such a beautiful theatre. The show is to celebrate Dame Shirley Bassey’s 80th birthday. It tells the story of her life and is a celebration of her magnificent career.”
