Yshani Perinpanayagam - West End Magic
It's Jessie's Homemade Garden Jam Season 2 Finale! We’re gonna celebrate and have a big old party with bangers from Mamma Mia, Cabaret, We Will Rock You, &Juliet, Six and Rent. We’ll have a full West End band lovingly curated by Yshani, and featuring the amazing &Juliet’s Kirstie Skivington!
Time & Location

You requested music you could sing along to, and we intend to deliver, with our very own West End extravaganza, with a twist.
With a combined audience of 15 million a year, the West End is an institution of British Culture. Yet 9 out of 10 musicians playing on the West End are male. We’re going to buck that trend with a shockingly gender balanced (WHAT?!?) ensemble arranged by MD Yshani Perinpanayagam. It'll be a season finale party jam, encouraging singalongs and featuring games inspired by famous musicals.
