About the Event

Please RSVP to this event 

Our speaker tonight will be Lindsey Barrell (aka Ms Cherry Bombe) - Burlesque, Me and the WI Talk

WI President Lindsey does a fabulously funny and heart-warming talk that covers how she discovered burlesque, and then the WI, and brought the two worlds together.

From empty nest to huge success, and via dance classes and craft sessions, Lindsey will take you on a journey that a lot of us can relate to.

This is a humorous talk that illustrates how even the most diverse of topics can epitomise the Fun, Friendship and Education ethos of the WI and it Can incorporate costumes and a demonstration shimmy-along (optional).

45 minutes to 1 hour to suit. (although has been known to go over…)

Some recent feedback for this talk.
