This was a busy old weekend of shows and travelling for me! Thursday saw "The Missy Malone & Friends Burlesque Revue" visit The Queens Hall Theatre in Cranbrook, Kent.

After a long drive to Kent I was greeted by a beautiful theatre space for the show, a large stage, pro lighting and cabaret style seating! What I was not expecting was that the theatre was set in the heart of a ...private school!!!  Our dinner was served in the school canteen!! We even had our own waiters in the form of lovely 6th form boys! Very surreal!

I am delighted to say the show was another storming success! The theatre was packed to the rafters with over 200 in the crowd!

My amazing line up included, Luna Rosa, Cherry Shakewell, Beau Rocks, Beatrix Von Bourbon and Des O'Connor.  I will blog about the show when I have the official photos back!

On Friday I high tailed it to London after not very much sleep for Cherry Shakewell's wonderful "Bond" inspired dinner show "Pussy Galore" at Volupte. I was performing in both shows (early & late) alongside Cherry Shakewell, Gracie, Tom Moans and Craig the Incredible Hula Boy!

My AMAZING new dressing gown! A gift from Cherry!

On Saturday I caught an afternoon train from London to Sheffield for the amazing "Burly Q" show. But first enjoyed a wander around the station!
Brief Encounter in St Pancras Station

I have wanted to perform at the highly recommended "Burly Q" show for so long and it did not disappoint!! I was also delighted to feature as the poster girl for this event and I just ADORE the artwork by "Joe Bonshaker"!

The show is held in a proper northern working mans club so the atmosphere takes you right back in time and was a total advance sell out! There was also bingo going on the hall next door!

I was performing alongside Velma Von Bon Bon, Amelie Soliel, Edd Muir, Ginger Hayworth, Penny Dreadful and my personal highlight of the night strong woman Betty Brawn!

After the show most of the cast enjoyed a catch up back in the hotel! Bleary eyed the next morning I caught a train home and tried to catch up with myself!

A nice surprise when I got home was to find I was a covergirl once again for Breeze Magazine (Jan 2012 issue)

On Christmas morning bright and early (5am!) Dave and I hit the road to spend Christmas with my parents in Livingston, Scotland! It is always the quietest drive you will ever have! and we made it in record time, arriving at 10am!
Open Road

We enjoyed a lovely few relaxed festive days of gifts, good food, drinks and Games. Perfection!

 Dave then headed home after three lovely days and I stayed on as I was performing on Hogmanay (New Years Eve for those non-Scots). I carried on the food, drink and merriment and was happy to catch up with so many friends and family!

On Hogmanay I was performing at one of my favourite clubs Vegas! in Edinburgh. I have now performed at FIVE Vegas Hogmanay events so it is a nice tradition for me and a perfect way to bring in the new year! It was extra special for me this year as my parents came along and also my best gal Leyla Rose too! I am sad to hear that long standing DJ/MC the wonderful Dino Martini will be taking a break from Vegas, I am just glad I was there for his last one and I will remember the Vegas events we did together fondly.
