Tiffaney Wells at Mollys
If you want some fabulous cabaret then check out every Thursday at Molly Moggs, the small but beautifully formed Soho venue at the end of Old Compton Street, where the marvellous Tiffaney Wells is now the weekly resident at 9pm. We asked Ms Wells what we could expect and she told us: “I’m so happy to be performing every Thursday at one of my favourite places in the West End. I love Molly Moggs, it’s an amazing venue with a fantastic team. Every week we are going to have fabulous costumes, songs, medleys, comedy and sing-alongs. I can’t wait!”
