Blogging has allowed me to do things that I would never have though to do myself. It’s pretty awesome. I’ve lived here for nearly 5 years and have seen the tent pop up every year, but have never made it along to the Bristol leg of the Ladyboys of Bangkok UK Tour.
I had no idea what to expect, so I’ll try to explain as best I can without giving too much away – the room is set up with lots of tables (rather than seats in rows which is what I expected) and we were sat pretty much at the front (which wasn’t so great for the boys on our table, hee!) I guess it’s sort of like a cabaret, where you have lots of different songs and musical skits.
Want to see some photos? Well, OK then…
(loved this – she did “Starships” by Nicki Minaj)
(Don’t think this needs explaining!)
(I totally want a sparkly bra and pant set)
(This was based on a certain popular book – I’ve not read it though, so didn’t really get it!)
(I want a sparkly suit as well)
(One of my favourite Girls Aloud songs!)
(The finale – very Victorias Secret!)
I loved loved loved the outfits in the show – seriously sparkly and very glam. While this wasn’t something I have been able to go to before, I really enjoyed myself. My mum had always wanted to go to see this show, so it was quite nice to be able to do something she would have enjoyed as well. It’s definitely more of a girls night out sort of thing to do – the few men in the audience were the ones dragged up on stage a lot!
The Lady Boys of Bangkok will be in Bristol until Saturday 27th, so book your tickets quick!
