Yesterday I travelled down to to London Town to perform at the super chic "La Reve" at Cafe De Paris! I caught an early (& cheap!) train and spent a rainy afternoon wandering around SOHO and Carnaby Street!

Burger at The Diner!

It was all change at Cafe De Paris as they had just finished moving the stage to the other side of the room! (It has not been back in that spot since the 1950's!) so it felt a little unusual performing facing the other way than usual!

The fab line up I was performing alongside included: Ivy Paige, Frisky & Mannish, Count Adrianio Fettucni, Matt Ricardo, Miss Miranda, Jessie Rose and Amy Panter!

I then hopped the night bus home so that I could wake up in my own bed and have a rare Saturday to myself!

 Last weekend was another super busy one for me as I was performing in Nottingham and London....8 Acts in 2 Nights!

On Friday I headed to Nottingham to perform at the new super glitzy "Queen of Clubs" for their weekly Friday "Burlesque" night! It was great fun by I was totally upstaged by the Glam Queens on the door!
Find out more about the club here: QUEEN OF CLUBS

 I was staying with my friend and fellow performer Scarlett Daggers' place and enjoyed a catch up and a bit of vintage shopping the next morning before I caught my train to London!

Having a rummage!
These Cat's were bought by Millie Dollar the very next day!
My little treasure!
 On Saturday I was performing in three shows that evening, the first two was my regular haunt and James Bond-tastic "Pussy Galore", for their early and late dinner shows. I was performing alongside the wonderful Cherry Shakewell, Gracie, Spencer Maybe and Matt Hennem! Find out more about the show here: PUSSY GALORE

The third saw my return to Torture Garden for their "Boat Party" on the HMS President! It had been 3 years since I last worked with the TG team in Croatia and it was lovely to be back and see them all!

I was performing alongside the Stunning Laurie Hagen and Scottie and the venue was awesome!

I travelled home on Sunday afternoon and put my feet up for a well deserved cup of tea!

Last Friday The Missy Malone & Friends Burlesque Revue hit the road once again to bring the show to the beautiful Accrington Town Hall for another sell out show! It is a stunning venue and a really lovely space to perform in, and also very lovely accommodating staff!  Here is a photo (below) of the venue dating from 1897 and it has not changed much on the outside!
