A star of film and stage is set to visit Burnham-On-Sea this Spring to discuss her career.

Anita Harris appeared in several popular Carry On comedy films including Follow That Camel and Carry On Doctor.

She was also one of the brightest young singing stars of the 1960s, performing on bills alongside Dusty Springfield and Petula Clark.

She learned her trade from Frank Sinatra and Mae West on the glittering stages of Las Vegas and went to the same parties as The Beatles.

Later, she was one of the world’s highest-paid cabaret artists and had a long-running starring role as Grizabella in the musical Cats.

Anita will be appearing at Burnham’s Princess Theatre on Friday 29th May when she will look back at her busy life.

“Anita invites you to share in an evening of her favourite stories and most loved songs from her celebrated 50 year career from Las Vegas to the London Palladium, Top of the Pops to Cats, accompanied by Princess favourite Peter Gill,” said a spokesperson.

Tickets for the event, which starts at 7.30pm, are available now, priced £13.50 for standard entry and £12.50 for concessions. More details on 01278 784464.
