A truly multi-faceted artist, Cherise is fast proving herself to be one of the most fiercely talented young musicians around. Her effortless, irresistible vocal alongside her honest and soulful song writing manage to be simultaneously contemporary and timeless, firmly marking her out as one of the most exciting talents around.
Owing much of her early musical development to the highly respected grass roots organisation Tomorrow’s Warriors, she has played venues including the Royal Albert Hall and Washington DC’s Kennedy Centre, as well as performing alongside artists including Nubiyan Twist and Corinne Bailey Rae.
The Daffodil began life as Cheltenham’s first purpose built picture palace, opening its doors to the public on the 5th October 1922. With its contemporary Art Deco style and exuberant individuality, The Daffodil was an instant success and, despite its
impressive 750 seat capacity, screenings had to be increased from one showing per week to twice-daily to cope with visitor demand.
In 1996, The Daffodil underwent a period of renovation, proudly re-opening as one of Britain’s most unique and dramatic dining rooms on 14th February 1998 amid a flurry of excitement and intense local interest. The venue is continually restored and invested in to ensure that The Daffodil remains as vibrant and stylish as when it opened nearly a century ago.
Today the building is a civic award winning iconic Cheltenham Landmark as well as one of country’s finest surviving examples of original Art Deco cinema design.
