Cate Cody Showboat Night on the Oliver Cromwell Paddle Wheeler

21st June 2010

Cate Cody to appear on Olover Cromwell Paddle Wheeler at Gloucester Docks

Cate Cody Showboat Night on the Oliver Cromwell Paddle Wheeler
Saturday 3rd July - At a Very Special Offer Price 

The captivating Cate Cody will be appearing in cabaret at the next Oliver Cromwell Showboat on Saturday, 3rd July in Gloucester Docks – and tables at this dinner dance night are available at the VERY special offer price of ONLY £14.95pp, including a three-course dinner.

This will be the first appearance for Cate Cody on the Paddle Wheeler. She’s a local lass with national credits, bringing the house down when she appeared at the BAFTA awards dinner in 2009.

On this occasion, Cate will be appearing with pianist Mike Graver to sing ballads from the 1930s Golden Age of Jazz. This was the time of Fats Waller, Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael and Gershwin, writing for performers like Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Louise Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and ‘Nat’ King Cole.

Cate Cody has a voice ‘full of emotion and passion’ reminiscent of her heroine Billie Holiday.

The evening starts when the bar opens at 7.00pm and if it’s warm and dry outside you can go up to the top deck of the boat to enjoy a drink with the best view in the Docks. From 7.30pm, a delicious 3-course set dinner will be served in the saloon, where there is also a well-stocked licensed bar to keep you refreshed right through the evening.

After dinner, the lights go down as Cate Cody starts her performance. Sit back and relish the intimate atmosphere, exquisite vocals and dreamy piano. The live show goes on through until 11pm. Guests for this Showboat Dinner Dance can be sure of a great evening of food, drink and entertainment.

Normally these evenings cost a lot more but on this occasion, to help you celebrate the summer and forget the gloomy economic conditions outside, the meal and live show is priced at only £14.95pp. What’s more, if you get a group of 8 people or more together, the price will be only £13.95pp!

This Showboat will be more popular than ever so you will need to book your places soon. The last one sold out well beforehand. Call 01452-410411 to reserve your table and pay a deposit of £5.00pp.  Advance booking is essential. There’s convenient car parking available alongside the vessel. Also visit and
