Birds of a feather will flock to Chester Guildhall on New Year’s Eve.
International burlesque artist, Miss Tickle, will join Britain’s Got Talent finalist Carrie O’Dell, local talent The Harmonettes and magician Paul Dabek for GoldDust Productions’ Birds of Paradise Ball.
Promoter, Neil Kendall, said: “This is our fourth New Year’s Eve extravaganza and we wanted to do something really special.
“I chose the theme following a trip to Las Vegas where I saw Miss Tickle wow the crowds on the Las Vegas Strip in a burlesque act she calls Wings of Desire.
“It’s a wonderful act where she ends up as a giant swan with a 30ft wing span!”
Neil added: “Audiences can expect to see acts in giant bird cages, amazing costumes and dancing until the small hours.”
The audience plays a very important part in all GoldDust productions.
Neil said: “They always come dressed to the nines for the event and we often crown a Mr and Miss New Year’s Eve.
“Tickets for the New Year’s Eve balls usually sell out because people love to see live entertainment and they love to be dazzled. We have a rich tradition here in the UK of pantomime and music hall which thrives to this day. People love to see a spectacular show.”
Tickets are £40 for table seating and can be ordered from Neil on 07776 198332 or at the box office at www.skiddle.com.
