RUBY TUESDAY PRESENTS... FEELING NOUGHTIES
Revellers gathered in the intimate basement of Drink, Shop & Do for FEELING NOUGHTIES, a night of burlesque, comedy and Noughties nostalgia, to celebrate the launch of A. L. Michael's Goodbye Ruby Tuesday and in support of Core Arts, a social business that promotes positive mental health through creativity. Compere Scottee dazzled in an array of glittering outfits, comedian Katie Pritchard serenaded a lettuce, Amelia Sparkles mesmerised audiences with her hypnotic hoops, and Ruby Deshabillé delivered an unforgettable showstopper. The event raised £500 for Core Arts.
At the 25th Larmer Tree Festival, Sara Veal gave a talk on how to get published, whether independently, digitally or traditionally, deep in the heart of the Lost Wood.
STRONG WOMEN SQUAD presents... RUN THE WORLD
A new squad assembled at The Dead Dolls House. The mission? To inspire and empower, and be inspired and empowered. The night opened with an awesome dance class from City Academy's Louise Douglas, learning the moves to Beyonce's Run the World, and unleashing the diva within, followed by lightning talks and performances from amazing women. There was laughter, tears, a giant boob, and power-women cocktails and mocktails, with an incredible haul of feminist reads and healthy treats for all the guests to take home as a reminder of the evening. The event raised £260 for Women's Aid.
