Lesley Garrett warms-up her vocal cords onboard Red Funnel ferry on route to perform at Wight Proms

(2 September 2019) Opera singer, Lesley Garrett gave one Red Funnel Captain an unforgettable journey when she gave an impromptu performance on the Bridge of Red Eagle on Saturday 31st August. Shortly after departing Southampton on route for East Cowes, Lesley made her way up to the Bridge to meet Captain Barbara Charlton and surprised her with a special rendition of the aptly suited ‘Sailing’ by Rod Stewart.

Lesley, a renowned soprano singer known for her West End roles in the likes of the Sound of Music and Carousel, was on her way to the Isle of Wight to perform at this year’s Wight Proms, which is supported by Red Funnel, during its ‘Last Wight of the Proms’ event.
