Change of Line Up

Due to circumstances beyond our control, and in no way connected to the performers or ourselves, we are sad to announce that Victor Sierra will not be appearing at our event in October.

ASDO are proud to announce that vaudeville burlesque style performer and Mistress of Ceremonies Madam Zuri Arrosa will once again be adding sass to our evening as MC.
She will also be showcasing her new solo act, A History Of Burlesque which is packed with bustle and cog friendly audience participation.

Lady Violet Hugh

As quoted by Paul Owens ” This lady has a wit and charm that sparkles, but her irreverent humour is positively effulgent! All of this, coupled with a beautiful operatic voice, ensure a fine evening’s entertainment full of double entendres and trenchant one-liners delivered in a style that is truly magnificent! and – yes – Splendid!”
