The Vogue Ball, Are You Ready To Strut Your Stuff?

Liverpool’s (and indeed the U.K.’s) most fabulous are being sought to strut their stuff on the catwalk at this year’s Vogue Ball on Saturday 6th October. The annual event, which has become an institution of Liverpool’s vibrant nightlife scene, will this year take place at Camp and Furnace with a ‘Twisted Fairy tales’ theme.

The Vogue Ball is a dance event like no other in the U.K. – where club culture meets high art and Vogue teams come together from far and wide to compete for dance supremacy, wearing costumes that are often as lavish as Cinderella’s ball-gown!

Vogue Ball organisers House of Saurez are looking for teams (known as Houses) to enter the ball. Entrants need not be professional dancers but must have imagination, flair and above all a fierce attitude. Vogue Houses will be required to provide their own costumes and consist of no more than 10 performers per house.

Each house must enter in to a certain category. There are six heats, performed before a Celebrity panel of judges including celebrity dressmaker Thelma Madine (Big Fat Gypsy Weddings) with a glittering trophy up for grabs for each and the opportunity to put the bass in your walk. The categories are Fantasy, Solo Dance, Realness, Erotica, Choreography and Outstanding House category.

More information for the event can be found at www.houseofsaurez.co.uk

Doors for the event are at 7pm with the show beginning at 8pm.

Tickets for the Vogue Ball are priced at £15 with a special offer of if you book before the 1st September; tickets are priced at £12.50. Tickets are available to buy from the Ticket Quarter  on Queen’s Square in Liverpool, on line at www.ticketquarter.co.uk or telephone on 0844 8000410.

The event is strictly over 18’s only.
