Free Burlesque Classes!

Further to my post on the Portobello Road Winter Festival last week, they have announced even more free stuff to add to the list down there!

There is now a FREE burlesque class happening at Mensah Vintage Clothing on Wednesday, December 9.  I did a burlesque dance class at my sister’s hen night, which proved to be much fun, so I would definitely recommend having a go!

The class starts at 8pm and you need to book a place.  You can email GUESTLIST@DAREEVENTS.CO.UK to put your name down.

If you need further incentive, there will be free mulled wine and food too!

Go on and shake your tail feather…

BFI’s Out At The Pictures

The British Film Institute screens LGBT films every month, and this month is no exception.

Billed as films ‘that might not otherwise find a place outside the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival’, the movies are a mix of old and new.

This week why not try out The Haunting, an adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Haunting of Hill House’.  It’s showing on Sunday, December 13 and costs £9 for adults and £6.50 for students and the unwaged.

If you can’t make it this week, another film that’s coming up over the next few weeks is Can’t Stop The Music, which is a film starring The Village People.  Worth a watch just for the anthems ‘YMCA’ and ‘In The Navy’….

Can’t Stop The Music is showing on December 17 and 19.  Check out the website for more details, and films that are coming up in January.

Stuff you should know: The BFI is situated on London’s Southbank.  Nearest tube is Waterloo.

VIP? Yes please!

If you want to do your Christmas shopping in style, consider heading to the Oxford Street  area this Saturday.

Oxford Street and Regent Street are becoming traffic-free for the day, in an attempt to get VIPs – that’s Very Important Pedestrians – to hit the shops.

There’ll be promotions, entertainment and even a chill out zone – which you’ll probably need after encountering the hoardes of crowds.   Ladies, head to River Island to get free makeovers from Bourjois and Toni & Guy.

Nearest Tube: Oxford Street.
