After the success of the Autism Unseen Kilimanjaro Challenge where Julia helped raise over £40,000 to send a team of autistic youngsters to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Julia is now touring UK theatres helping to raise funds for The Autism Unseen Tallships Challenge. In the summer of 2021 Autism Unseen will be taking 6 groups of autistic and special needs youngsters, accompanied by team buddies, and sailing them 1,675 miles around the UK in a 70 foot Challenger Racing Yacht. This is one of Autism Unseen’s most ambitious challenges to date, and the first time that a challenge of this nature has ever been set. By the time the autistic challenge participants have completed their voyage they will be much more self assured, confident and ready to meet head-on the daily challenges of being autistic.

2018 & 2019 NATIONAL TRIBUTE MUSIC AWARDS
In 2018 in a glittering award ceremony at the Athena Theatre Leicester, Julia was awarded the accolade of being the UK’s No1 Tribute to both Dame Shirley Bassey, and Celine Dion. Julia was also nominated and short-listed as the UK’s No1 Multi-Tribute artiste.
Julia then went one-step further in 2019, when at the 2019 National Tribute Music Awards held at the stunning Chateau Impney, she was awarded yet again the accolade of the UK’s No1 tribute to Dame Shirley Bassey and Celine Dion, along with the award of the UK’s No1 Dolly Parton.
Julia’s production company JM Productions was also nominated and short-listed for Best Marketing & PR 2019, a reflection on the great website and marketing publicity for all of Julia’s shows.
INDIVIDUAL TRIBUTE SHOWS
Solo tribute shows are the backbone of Julia’s performance schedule and these shows have been responsible for taking her around the world to perform for Blue Chip Companies, Leading Hotels, Cruise Liners, Heads of State and the Rich & Famous. Prices are based on length of performance and in some cases distance travelled, and clients can choose from a number of timings to accommodate their style of evening. Exceptional Quality, Professionalism, Flexibility and Value For Money are the essential ingredients that make Julia’s shows so popular, and are the reason that clients rebook time after time. Julia is always happy to discuss each show on an individual basis, after all every client is individual and every event is special.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Julia owns the largest private collection in the world of original Dame Shirley Bassey stage gowns, and even now, 16 years after purchasing them, she still gets the thrill of wearing a gown that Dame Shirley herself stood and entertained her audience in. When Julia puts on these original gowns, the make-up, and the wig, she is transformed into Dame Shirley Bassey. Similarly with her other tribute shows, whilst Julia does not have original costumes, replicas have been made, carefully crafted with hundreds of hours of labour being spent on the construction, using the same materials and following every minute detail of the original costume. The Alexander McQueen Silver Celine Dion dress, worn in her Vegas show to perform ‘River Deep’ is one of Julia’s favourites and was copied down to the very last stitch. The Swarovski studded blouse, worn by Dolly at Glastonbury, was replicated to the very last crystal, with thousands of Swarovski gems being hand stitched to make this outfit authentic. Julia not only takes great pride in how she sings and performs, but also in how she looks. The magic of creating a great tribute show is not just the singing, which of course is important, it is about bringing all the components together, the voice, the look, the mannerisms and the personality, this is what creates the illusion, and this is where Julia excels, by making the audience believe that they have watched the original artist perform.
MISS JULIA MARTIN HAS SPENT 20 YEARS PERFORMING
HER TRIBUTE SHOWS AROUND THE WORLD
BESPOKE TRIBUTE SHOWS
Clients can choose an evening of just one character, or can combine a number of tribute characters, a dance spot can also be included to finish the evening, with Julia’s famous 70’s CarWash Special, guaranteed to fill the dance floor. Julia is often booked to provide a mixed evening of tribute entertainment, thus reducing the costly exercise of paying for more than one tribute artiste. On bespoke tribute nights Julia can provide up to 3 hours of incredible entertainment, sometimes using a compère to keep the flow of the show during character and costume changes. This type of show was used recently to great effect, during a series of 6 prestigious award ceremonies for a leading blue chip company. These events took place throughout the UK with Julia’s brief to provide non-stop tribute entertainment from 9pm until midnight.
