Yes we did!!! We had such a great night, and far exceeded the expectations. Last year we raised £1151 - This year we smashed that by raising an amazing £1635 including approximately £35 from sales of Rubber Monkey tote bags which has already been sent to MIND. I will be sending £1600 in cash to them today and its all thanks to YOU!!!!
We are very very honoured to announce the appearance of Bizarre Magazine cover star - Collette Von Tora. She has graciously agreed to appear in the Rubber Monkey fashion show part of OpemMINDed and will also be signing photos after the show.

Yes I realise this is just another Charity show to a lot of you but please try and support us if you can, I know finances are tight at the moment and that every cause is a worthy one, but mental health issues, Depression, BPD etc affect almost everyone at some point in their lives. Please come and see what promises to be a very very special show.
What sort of show I hear you shout at your computer screens, well the computer screen will not answer you but I can... BURLESQUE!!!! Yes nothing like the film. hahaha, Sure Christina can sing (well some people think so) but real burlesque is not about nightclubs and bars its about the girls that perform and the reasons they do it. Some girls do it to build self confidence, some girls do it for expression, some do it just because they want to show the world they dont care who judges them for what they choose to do... Whatever the reason they are doing it, most of all they are doing it for you guys, the Audience, They do it for the cheers & the whistles and the happiness it can give... Part of that happiness is giving this to charity, every performer has waived their usual fees to support this
We have some of the most up and coming local talent, we have one of the HOTTEST acts you will ever see, one of the FUNNIEST acts bar none.
Cherry Stone makes a welcome return to our show along with Sapphire Le Starr, Mama Jenufa, Felicia Noir, Satine DiMonte and our very special headliner - Mysti Vine!!!
