From 2007 - 13 Lily sang with Southwark Cathedral Girls Choir under the direction of Stephen Disley. She was appointed Lithgow Chanter in 2008 and from 2009 led the choir as Launderer Chanter (Head Chorister). Highlights of her time there include singing choral evensong on BBC Radio 3 and Choral Eucharist broadcast live on BBC 1. She has performed for the Queen, in the Royal Albert Hall under the direction of John Rutter and at the Royal Festival Hall as part of the inaugural Orion Chorus under Toby Purser.  

 

Since 2010, Lily has worked with English Cabaret on a range of projects. On stage she has appeared as Pandora in The Happy Prince at two Edinburgh Fringe Festivals 2012 and 2014 both at C Venues, at the 10th International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival and at the Bridewell Theatre, London.  

 

She has taken part in her father's on-going projects about David Maxwell Fyfe since 2004 when she played Mo in Making History at The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks. On the adventure, she took photographs for his film, Under an English Heaven and appeared as herself discovering the history of her great grandfather, David Maxwell Fyfe. In 2013 she sang as part of the Freedom Choir to launch www.kilmuirpapers.org at St Matthew’s Church, Westminster and at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014 repeated her part in Dreams of Peace & Freedom at St Peter's Church, C South.  

 

As well as singing in Dreams of Peace & Freedom, Lily performed in two other English Cabaret shows at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 - as Pandora in The Happy Prince, and making her debut as the 'English' Singing Baker in English Cabaret Hour - all of which were very well received.  

 

In 2015 Lily will continue to sing in Dreams of Peace & Freedom, spreading the important message of freedom with English Cabaret. She will also be working on her own cabaret show, as The 'English' Singing Baker, expanding her act in the English Cabaret Hour and combining her two loves of singing and baking.
