Past Event – Burlesque at Byzantium – Midsummer Nights Dream

Rio Wild Presents – The Final Burlesque at Byzantium Midsummer Nights Dream Burlesque.

This magical event takes place on Thursday 12th July with a woodland feast followed by flighty nymphs performing a spellbinding array of burlesque performances.

Rio Wild hosts this summer celebration to make your fantasies come true!

This event holds many incredible delights for the eye as well as the tastebuds.  Professional make-up artist Alana will be performing live art body painting with one of the performers as diners arrive for dinner.  Then guests will revel in the performance as they see it come to life!  Guests will also have the opportunity to be body painted like magical Fairy Queens, naughty nymphs or Pixie Princes – just let her imagination run Wild.

For the first time at these events, a pole will be used for two Polesque performances by Tabitha Tease of the Pink Kitten Dance School and Amber Rosia (runner up in European Pole Dancing competition) from London’s Ragdoll Rebels.  These zero gravity wonders will provide breathtaking daredevil moves as they amaze with their incredible strength and poise.

Sweet and wonderous Burlesque performances will also be made by the quirky cutie known as Bambi Beretta, cheeky little number Ivana Van Der Fluff shimmys in for Khandie Kisses, petite princess Sandy Sure and queen of our hearts Poppy von Tarte.  As an extra treat, some of these precious angels will be performing brand new shows!

Khandie Kisses will unfortunately not be performing at this show now, however look out for her performing at an event soon!

As a little extra surprise hot newcomer Cherrybomb Derriere will be gracing the stage following an illness that took her off the line-up at Jubilesque.

DJ Ghosty will be taking us on a magical mystery tour with his never-ending supply of honeysuckly sweet ear candy.

Byzantium Head Chef Rob Curtis has worked with Rio Wild to satisfy your palete with a woodland feast inspired menu starting with Goat’s cheese and celery seed mousse and forest mushrooms, followed by braised pork belly in cider with a white bean and chorizo cassoulet with apple crisps.  Dessert comes in the heavenly form of dreamy home-made fudge and coffee.  Vegetarian option is a fantastical sundried tomato and rosemary polenta cake with a white bean cassoulet.

Tickets are priced at £30 with dinner and £10 show only.
