Burlesque night to raise funds for Community Foundation

A stunning burlesque performance by local showgirl troupe, The Flaming Feathers, headlines an evening of entertainment at Harveys Cellars in aid of Bristol Rugby Community Foundation.

The newly refurbished sherry, wine and cocktail lounge in the heart of Bristol’s theatre district, is bringing a trio of top local entertainment for guests, hosted by burlesque heroine, Rio Wild of Rio Wild Presents.

On Harvey’s ‘menu’ is top table magician Darren Campbell, who was recently voted UK Wedding Entertainer of the Year 2012 and mesmerising belly dancer, Pearl.

Harveys’ new head chef, Chris Solomon will also be delighting guests, serving a three-course Latino feast designed to complement the evening.  Guests looking for VIP treatment are also catered for with tickets available for seating in the Cellar’s Music Room.

Money raised from tickets sales and a silent auction on the night will be donated to Bristol Rugby Community Foundation, which engages with and educates around 18,000 young people in the city every year.

The foundation team work with some of the most disaffected young people in Bristol, to help them make positive and informed choices in their lives.

Auction lots will include signed Bristol Rugby F.C. memorabilia and some exclusive Harveys Cellars sherry flights and tutored sherry evenings.  Sponsor, Courvoisier Brandy, has also donated bottles of its world-renowned cognac.

Claire Judd, General Manager at Harveys Cellars said: “We are very excited to be hosting this feast of food and glamorous entertainment, and our first-ever burlesque show.  The Bristol Rugby Community Foundation is a truly invaluable charity and we hope the people of Bristol will join us and help raise money to support the good work it does."

Tickets to this spectacular event cost just £55 (VIP seats in the Music Room) or £45 (seated in the restaurant) and includes the three-course dinner.
