An evening of Burlesque!

When I heard that there was going to be a burlesque and cabaret evening in my hometown I just had to reserve a table.After all its not every day that the stunningly talented ‘Susie Sequin’ and her fellow equally gorgeous performers from ‘The Looking Glass Burlesque’ grace sleepy little Clitheroe.

It is true my friends and I didnt really know what to expect! Was it really appropiate to be going on a girls night out to what could be little more than a female strip show?? But we needn’t have felt apprehensive.We had a fabulous evening!

Firstly the venue was lovely.The St Marys Centre in Clitheroe is an old church hall on Church street with olde worldy beams and its very own stage. All the tables were decorated with confetti and feathers and flickering candles. Secondly there was  a bar so we shared a couple of bottles of wine.Always a plus!

Enjoying the show!

The Burlesque acts were very tastefully done.A couple were a little unusual! Here is ‘Deadly Nightshade’ who changed into a werewolf during her time on stage.Sorry my pics are a little dark.

Susie Sequin was definantly one of our favourite performers.She did an elegant yet cheeky dance with pink feathers.;)
