Rio Wild celebrated Jubilesque on Thursday in great style!
It was one of those evenings when everything went wrong, it was the perfect ‘Carry On Burlesque‘ event! I did wonder at one point, if I’ve held these events at this venue previously, how does these things still keep going wrong?
From mic feedback, to clothes not coming off correctly, props malfunctioning, delayed guests through bad traffic, beer on tap running out, a number of pay on the door guests not turning up at all to my dress needing to be changed at the last minute! It was all going wrong, but so right in a sick-humoured kind of way.
The guests who did turn up were in high spirits and thoroughly enjoyed the show, promising to come again for the next one! The performers, Kitty Ribbons, Lou Leigh Blue, Penny Bizarre and Lilly Laudanum are amazing, incredible and simply gorgeous ladies who I totally adore. Elizabeth Venn, stage-hand extraodinaire and Claire and Helen from the incredible WinterFace Photography all made what could have been a ‘Nightmare on Portwall Lane‘ a totally joyous and entertaining evening. Thanks ladies!
A huge thank you to the guests and superstar DJ Risk.
We’re now rolling on to the next and possibly final Rio Wild Presents Burlesque at Byzantium on Thursday 12th July – a Midsummer Nights Dream themed evening of Burlesque, Polesque, live art body-painting and fun! Let’s make this one to remember! Click here to find full details.
