Burlesque at Heritage Motor Museum


This weekend I performed at the Heritage Motor Museum’s Commercial Vehicle Show. Last year I did a family friendly version of RAF Fancy and this year they wanted something 1950’s inspired! I decided on another family friendly routine and a few 1950’s songs including some Elvis.

The fan dance was similar to RAF Fancy with a few little changes and started with me singing Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend. I sang this once before at a Christmas party around 6 years back at an old work place and it was awful, so really wanted to do my best this time now I have a bit more confidence!

Although the crowds didn’t really stop, it did draw a few people and applause could be heard dotted around the museum after each song! It absolutely tipped it down on Sunday so I was transferred from the outdoor stage to the museum which was wonderful.

I also enjoyed looking round the exhibits including a car from one of the recent James Bond movies, Lady Penelope’s pink car from the Thunderbirds movie, land speed record vehicles and more. The museum also boasted a travelling exhibit of sci-fi movie replicas, of which I had a hilarious time posing with!

Everyone was so lovely and Emma and Sophie at the museum couldn’t be more helpful!
