Bluestocking Lounge will be going pink in 2013 with their very first charity calendar in support of Breast Cancer Care and Break Through Breast Cancer.
The calendar features performers, which include international artists FooFoo LaBelle, Tuesday Lavea and Velma Von Bon Bon and Swansea and Cardiff-based performers such as Miss Betty Blue Eyes, Sandy Sure, Bella Bambina and Primrose Proper, who have all hit the Bluestocking stage over its three year history and all were in full support of the message behind the calendar and its strong links to the mostly-female Bluestocking Lounge audience.
Bluestocking founder Lilly Laudanum says, “The calendar is the result of a promise to a close friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer. When we first started doing Bluestocking Lounge, I made a pledge to her that I would put on a charity show to give thanks to these charities and the vital work they do in supporting those diagnosed with breast cancer and the important research in finding the causes and a cure. That show turned into a much bigger project involving a number of artists and photographers who all wanted to show their support for such a worthy cause.”
The calendars are available from www.bluestocking lounge.com, Hobos in Oxford Street and will be for sale at the next Bluestocking Lounge show at Swansea Grand Theatre, 21 December priced £8. But the good news is Bluestocking ticket holders and those with their birthday printed inside can purchase theirs for just £7.
