In March, Lily continued her work on The Human's In The Telling as a principal singer and the words of Sylvia Maxwell Fyfe. Written by Tom Blackmore and Sue Casson, it is a film of song-cycle Dreams of Peace and Freedom, which explores the birth of modern human rights in Europe and the struggle to tell the story.

In May, Lily returned to St Lukes, Sevenoaks, to perform a programme that encompassed all of the different shows that she has performed there over the last ten years, as part of the St Lukes recital series. Joined by Sue Casson and Robert Blackmore, they reminisced for a very appreciative audience.

In August, Lily visited to Totnes to showcase Sue Casson's songcycle, Dreams of Peace and Freedom to eminent Human Rights lawyer, Jonathan Coooper. He has begun a campaign to create a City State of Totnes to remain part of the European Union after Brexit. As part of his campaign, Lily swore the oath of alliagance to the EU and recieved a passport of the City State of Totnes. He described the performance as 'a profound and beautiful experience.'
