Ruby Slippers Retro Romp, Devon
Ruby Slipper’s Retro Romp is a 3 day celebration of vintage brought to you by Devon’s burlesque funsters Kinky and Quirky.
From Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd April 2011, vintage and retro loving folk from the South West and beyond can indulge themselves at this fabulous event being held at The Rainbow Hotel Torquay Devon.
For just £99 per person (based on 2 sharing) lovers of all things retro will get Friday and Saturday’s dinner, bed and breakfast, a 3 day shopping pass, a 2 evening’s entertainment pass and a Sunday cream tea – and an extra £30.00 will get you dinner, b & b and entrance to the final show on Sunday night.
Opening from 11.00am – 4pm each day, visitors can root and rummage, ooh and aaah, try and buy and, get their full quota of retro retailing from a treasure trove of eclectic sellers.
There will be a programme of events throughout each day to try too, so for those that want to learn the Lindy, try a Victory Roll, get some vintage beauty parlour tips, doodle some cabaret life drawings or pose like a pin-up this will be THE place to do it.
After dark will see the red velvet and gold lame Club Rainbow hotting up as hosts Kinky & Quirky sprinkle their brand of fun & frivolity with a bit of sparkle and some fantastic music to make the joint start jumping.
A killer line-up will feature some of the best names on the U.K rockin’, cabaret and burlesque scenes including a hillbilly hoedown from the Bonneville Barons, extreme hula hooping from Pippa the Ripper, the chap- hop king Mr B, The Gentleman Rhymer and the Axe-tastic Anna Fur Laxis.
