A SAUCY burlesque show will form part of the celebrations at a charity fundraiser.

The Salsa Summer Ball and Fundraiser is being held on Saturday, June 27, at the Hanmer Arms, near Whitchurch, from 8pm till late.

Highlight of the evening will be the sponsored burlesque at approximately 10pm, featuring 10 ‘French Fancies’ plus a star guest. It’s not to be missed.

The girls will dance a burlesque routine which you can sponsor by sending donations in advance to or by giving donations on the evening in the collection tins which will be passed around or by placing cash in the Fancies’ costumes.

They will also dance in costume with anyone who wishes to pay £5 for the privilege.


The organisers have also lined-up a belly dancing demonstration at approximately 9pm by Emma from Shrewsbury, who, again, will be collecting donations in her costume.

She will also give a short belly dance lesson out on the roof terrace, weather permitting.

There will also be belly dancing with Bev and Maddy, from Oswestry, and Middle Eastern music on the roof terrace all

evening with salsa, bachata, cha and meregue in the main room.

All the money raised will go towards conservation/wildlife charities and to help to save critically endangered species.
