May Masked Ball Burlesque at Byzantium

Burlesque at Byzantium, hosted by Rio Wild, takes place on Thursday 10th may and is a May Masked Ball themed evening of beautiful breathtaking entertainment with dinner and burlesque performances by Kitty Ribbons, Lou Leigh Blue, Lily Belle and Pearl Boheme.

Host Rio Wild, brings dinner and a show back to Byzantium Restaurant, giving the audience a choice of dining in the restaurant before the show on a sumptuous menu specially prepared by Head Chef Rob Curtis and his team.  This second time event at Byzantium showcases some of Bristol and South-West’s most sought after performers.

Bristol’s stunning Byzantium Restaurant, with imposing wooden front doors, high ceilings, flagstone flooring and sweeping staircase offers the perfect rich and exotic surrounding for this event.

For those dining before the show, the evening will commence with welcome cocktails and magic followed by a two-course set-menu dinner with coffee and a passionfruit filled marshmallow.  For those attending only the show, welcome cocktails and magic are served prior to the highlight of the evening, which begins at 9pm.

Performances will be made by Rio Wild’s hand-picked selection of the South-West’s most stunning burlesque beauties.  With a line-up of Kitty Ribbons, Lou Leigh Blue, Lily Belle and Pearl Boheme this is a night of pure pleasure and indulgence.

Darren Campbell Magicman is lined up to amaze and astound with his consistently incredible never-before-seen tricks.

DJ Ghosty is the ear candy specialist for the evening, providing luxurious grooves and foot-tapping beats between the performers and until carriages at 2am.

Kitty Ribbons – Kitty delivers a kaleidoscope of guises and is inspired by all musical genres. She will seduce you with her homage to the Argentinean Tango, entertain you as a 1940s Pin-up GI, dazzle you with her 1930’s Gangsters Moll and dip you into the world of Fantasy as a beautiful Snow Queen and yet these are just some of her tantalising personas! 

Lou Leigh Blue – Teases and tantalises audiences with her sparkling sugar-coated cheesecake routines.  Audiences are in for a treat with every turn as she is one of the Bristol Burlesque scene’s true gems.

Lily Belle – Lily is a Burlesque Beauty, who works as a compere, singer, Burlesque dancer and Pin Up Model.  She will brighten up any event with her saucy sense of humour and wicked dance routines!

Pearl Boheme – Pearl born on wild fierce winters night, drifting through landscapes and planets on the wind, picking up ancient ancestral moves along the way Pearl Boheme will delight, entertain, hypnotise and scare you witless with her dance.
