Boo Booby Doo burlesque & cabaret show are holding an exclusive 1940s style burlesque show at our vintage weekend. On the evening of 31st May, the Boo Booby Doo will be swapping their usual ball gowns and evening dresses for traditional 1940s attire and encouraging their guests to follow suit.
We have scoured the entire uk for acts that will suit this weekend and have found the best around! The show will be filled up with headline acts, with one of our burlesque course attendees also strutting her stuff on the stage. The headline acts are as follows:
Frankii Wilde: Frankii started off in this industry as a professional model where she dabbled in a bit of everything! From Fashion to fetish, Beauty to Glamour and eventually found her passion for the art of the 1940s/50s Pin Up.
Elsie Diamond: Elsie Diamond is a burlesque performer, cabaret singer and compere. Inspired by the music hall tradition of comic song, opera, pop culture, the songs of WW2 and a background in costume design, Miss Diamond has an eclectic repertoire of sultry musical based routines. Be it war time classics, 18th century satire or classic fan dance, Elsie will add a vintage sparkle to grace any occasion. (Elsie will be singing on the evening.)
Leyla Rose: With her enchanting smile, feline grace, marshmallow skin and retro-vamp style, performers rarely get more intriguing than Leyla Rose.
Missy Malone: Missy Malone is a heady cocktail of 1950’s bombshell and classic rock chick. A highly accomplished and sought-after performer on the UK burlesque scene who has performed internationally and has graced the cover of several publications and campaigns.
The evening will be compared by Miss Diamond Deluxe. And hosted by Heidi Holdsworth of Eclipse Beauty in Ripponden and Rebecca Sedgewick and Amanda Sedgewick of Anon Lingerie, Elland and will be similar to their regular nights in Ripponden, with cabaret seating, candles, a stage, a bar and an amazing array of performers!
