Thank you very much to Lynda Styan (the singer engaged for the Event). It was amazing to see such a glamorous singer recreate the sophisticated voices of Dame Vera Lynn and Anne Shelton, and then surprise enough, produced a ukulele!

'Lynda was one of the acts at the Downton Abbey Event, Hammerson House, The Bishop's Avenue, London. The audience had a wonderful time and her act was exactly right for the occasion. Lynda is a very skilled artist and has mastered the sound style of the 20s, 30s and 40s. She can evoke those eras, bringing her audience straight into the period. I have no hesitation in recommending her.'

I have known Lynda Styan since 1996, and she has performed with my band (Spencer’s Nighthawks) on various occasions.

She has always been a 100% professional person in every way. She knows her music period extremely well, and has the well practised ability to deliver in a convincing and entertaining manner. Both her singing and ukulele playing are delightful. She’s always very well “turned-out”punctual and pleasant. A true professional.

'Lynda was employed for a Roaring Twenties/Peaky Blinders 'Silver Sunday Event' as part of Sanctuary Care in collaboration with Westminster Council's Silver Sunday Project. Her singing act went down very well indeed, and she was enjoyed by everyone attending. She is definitely has an excellent act, and I can certainly recommend her'.

Lynda Styan is the entertainer I would always turn to first for any kind of family or general celebration.

I first saw her perform at charity social events I am connected with and saw at once how
she can make them go with a swing.

I subsequently made sure that we booked her for a long golden wedding celebration, a four hour cruise on a river
boat shuffle on the River Thames. The sunshine was golden, Lynda's singing was golden,
and our guests keep telling us they have never been at such a happy event, Her range of styles and
musical vogues is very wide.

Her singing talent is accompanied by a warm and friendly personality which draws people to
her.

I thoroughly recommend this musical star.

Lynda did a great job for us last year and if we get funding for another event we would love to have her back. I wish now I had shot some video of your act but in truth I was enjoying it too much to do that.
