Roll Up Roll Up for the Best Burlesque Circus in Town!

Well, well, well - didn't we do WELL!!

Our fabulous gals put together one helluva fabulous night!!

Raising money and awareness for the St Albans & Hertsmere Womens Refuge we hosted a Burlesque Evening at the Cue Club in St Albans on Saturday 21st September 2013. 

With the venue decorated beautifully by our very talented girls we were ready for action! 

The evening began with a few words from Liz Perry of St Albans & Hertsmere Womens Refuge, who gave a moving and though provoking speech to raise awareness for the Refuge.  

The show then kicked off with the debut performance from the incredible new band The Inmates playing some fabulous old school rhythm and blues accompanied on the dance floor by the amazing dancers from St Albans Jive Swing who got the crowd in the mood.

Now the show was in full swing and it was time for our beautiful performers to appear, October Rush, Tigerlily Wolf, Lady May-den Voyage and Scarlet Cuffs.   Each of the ladies put on a stunning and unique performance and the crowd were truly delighted!  The ladies were followed by Magician Dee Riley who did a fabulous job in keeping everyone amazed and entertained.

The evening was compered by Big Top Tim who did a marvellous job being our Ringmaster and making sure everyone was kept captivated at all times! 

Throughout the evening we had a jewellery stall run by Troublecat Jewellery, our guests could then move along to our Pop Up Parlour run by Bombshell Boutique who spent the evening creating beautiful make up and hair styles, before moving along to get snapped in our Photo Booth run by yours truly; Dawn Elliott Photography.

We were honoured to welcome Mayor of St Albans, Annie Brewster, who showed her support and gave a speech and presented our Head of Events, Lia Nellissen, with a much deserved bunch of flowers for all her hard work.

The Inmates then began their final set and everyone danced into the early hours and I think I can safely say a good time was had by all!!!

Roll on the next one....!
