Nottinghamâs stunning city centre venue Antenna played host to The Carousel Club on the night of Friday 2nd December, for a vibrant and glamorous evening of Burlesque.Â The venue known for its dynamic creative community set the stage for a wave of UK talent which offered clientele an evening of old fashioned burlesque and cabaret performances alongside comedy, magic and music. The evening organised by Susi Henson of internationally renowned Nottingham based Corsetieres Eternal Spirits was a huge sell out success âit was a great evening, the energy in the venue just came alive from the sheer delight that our exceptional performers offered. Itâs about time the Burlesque scene in Nottingham was reignited with a fiery and spectacular nightâ. After the success of this, the first Carousel Club will become a quarterly event.
Dusty Limits a favourite name on the burlesque circuit came from London to compere the evening, with his amused sarcastic wit and vivacious banter, as well as a voice straight out of a west end stage, that delighted the dressed up crowd throughout the evening. The evening opened with Nottinghamâs very own Broomhill String Band who blazed their way through a stunning set of deep south style tunes. Followed by the sultry tones of vintage soul singer Coco Malone who captivated the audience with her sensational voice. Scarlett Daggers and Millie Dollar dazzled on lookers with their sensational costumes and tassle twirling with their incredible performances such as Millieâs âBlue martiniâ and Scarlettâs âHot rodâ act. Pinky Blush another Nottingham favourite delighted the crowd with her beautiful voice and sultry demeanour. Dee Christopher Nottinghamâs most illustrious magician and Illusionist wowed the crowd with his daring stunts, incredible mind tricks and cunning bravado.
As the performers wowed, delighted and amazed, guests enjoyed an exquisite selection of Burlesque themed cocktails designed by Antenna and stunning cupcakes by one of the cityâs finest cake maker Lottie Cupcakes. As the venue came alive in a flurry of twinkly lights, vibrant colours and glitter the scene was set for a new kind of evening entertainment in Nottingham, the kind that welcomes dreams and weaves magic.
