Suffolk: Eliza Doolittle to headline Harvest at Jimmy’s

AN acclaimed singer currently riding high after top ten chart success will headline a Suffolk music and food festival later this year.

Eliza Doolittle has been confirmed as the main act to play at Harvest at Jimmy’s - staged at Jimmy’s Farm - from September 9 - 12.

The 22-year-old will perform at the venue in Wherstead near Ipswich alongside a host of up-and-coming acts including guitarist Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

Doolittle has enjoyed success in both the singles and album charts over the past two years.

Her debut, self-titled album, Eliza Doolittle was released in July last year and debuted at number three in the UK.

Since the album’s release, she has had two top 25 hits, including ‘Skinny Genes’ and ‘Pack Up’ which reached number five in the singles charts.

The event at the venue owned by celebrity farmer Jimmy Doherty will also give people a chance to taste produce by a number of top chefs and camp at the site overnight.
