'Divas' — a special charity performance by Samantha King

in aid of Hat and Boots Restoration Appeal

Haddenham Baptist Church is delighted to host a double bill performance by professional vocalist Samantha King on 28th January in aid of their Hat and Boots Restoration Appeal. Sam has called her concert "Divas", which will be an insight and tribute to the many fabulous voices that have driven and inspired her throughout her career.  The performance will feature the songs of Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston and many more.

Samantha grew up in a house full of music, often singing with her Dad as a child whilst he played guitar. In her teens and early twenties she sang in bands and began to write and record her own songs. At the age of 23 she became a professional vocalist and continued to work in The Entertainment Industry for 20 years as an Entertainment Manager and Cabaret artiste, living in Torquay for 10 years and touring South Wales many times.

After moving to Haddenham, Samantha decided to rekindle her passion for singing. She recently played The Wicked Queen and Jack in the Haddenham Players production "It'll be alright on the Night" and she regularly sings with the worship band at St Mary's Church. 

The Divas concerts will take place at both 3pm and at 7.30pm on Saturday 28th January in Haddenham Baptist Church. Tickets are limited and cost £8 for adults and £5 for under-16's from Blooming Fruity or £8.50/£5.50 online at

Refreshments will be available for donations.

This is a fundraising event in aid of the Hat and Boots Restoration Appeal, which was launched in November 2022 to raise up to half a million pounds to save the historic Witchert Baptist chapel.
