Just round the corner from Trafalgar Square sits the gorgeous Halfway II Heaven, but its façade of innocence belies the raucous fun going on downstairs. We visited this Sunday afternoon, and saw scene legends, Crystal D’Canter and Tanya Hyde performing songs from the musicals with great aplomb, to tumultuous applause from the heaving, and up for it audience. Sunday afternoons simply wouldn’t be the same without the acerbic wit of Crystal punctuating the great musical numbers. Halfway II Heaven could be misnamed – you’d easily be forgiven for thinking you’d gone directly to heaven!
