Dusty Day 2013

Dusty Day 2013 celebrated Dusty's 50th anniversary of going solo. See photos and videos from the occasion here!

For many Dusty fans, Dusty Day is the highlight of their year, and they travel from near and far to celebrate Britain's finest singer to date, Dusty Springfield.

Dusty Day was held on May 26 (a month later than usual, owing to work commitments) at West 5 in Ealing, where the event has been held the last couple of years.

Old and new friends from Let's Talk Dusty! and elsewhere, chatting in the garden and generally having a great time.

At show time, the audience was entertained by Wee Willie Harris, Peter Miles, Martyna, Simon Bell and Madeline Bell. As usual wonderfully accompanied by Jonathan Cohen.

Pat Rhodes has, once again, found fabulous items in the back of her Narnia wardrobe for the auction. Over £ 4250 were raised for the cancer research fund at the Royal Marsden! Well done, everybody!
