About The Show

A new version of Rosie's critically acclaimed show Rosie's Pop Diary, reworked with Director Anthony Shrubsall. Mixing stand up, storytelling and acoustic versions of her songs, Rosie delves into a personal treasure trove of old photos, fan letters, reviews and the original Rosies Pop Diary (her 90s column in the now defunct music magazine, Making Music) for this funny and touching show that explores the nature of nostalgia.
