Foxy Burlesque have performed at a number of charity events over the years, but never before have we been invited to perform at Madame Jojo’s in SOHO London! YES, I did just say Madame Jojo’s! The one and only!!
So, as I’m sure you can imagine, I jumped at the chance. The fab event we are going to be part of is ‘Up Yer Bum’ a very aptly named event raising money for the very worthy charity Beating Bowel Cancer.
So, what is ‘Up Yer Bum’ in the words of the organisers:
‘We hold the “Up Yer Bum” Charity Cabaret as a fun way to raise awareness of bowel cancer and to provide entertainment in the process. The Acts are amazing quality, the compere great fun and the event offers many “oooh’s and aaah’s”. We have stupendous singers, dazzling dancers, cracking comedians and brilliant burlesque. All Acts are kindly donated by some smashing people who are willing to give their time and talent to a good cause.
Originally planned as a “one off”, we were delighted with the success of 2011 and on the night many people wanted to know the date of the next event… Which made us realise, we should do it all again and again!’
So, how did ‘Up Yer Bum’ come about?
Deborah Puxty-Ward does a lot of volunteering for the Beating Bowel Cancer charity and has done so for over 5 years now, following a diagnosis herself at only 29yrs of age.
When you’ve done that, I know, like me, you will feel passionately about supporting this wonderful event and charity.
My gorgeous Foxy Burlesque girls are rehearsing hard, so the seven of us would love to see you there!
PS: Yes we will be twirling our tassels for you! 😉
