Lillettes Reform for Charity

Featuring Dolly Tub & Bella La Goosie

poster copy

A popular Manchester drag duo from the Noughties is reforming for a charity show in Brighton. Dolly Tub and Bella LaGoosie last performed together in 2010, before Dolly left Manchester to move to Brighton. And who is this Dolly Tub, I hear you ask? Well most of you will know him as Philip, the manager of Nice ‘n’ Naughty on St James Street, where he has been behind the counter for nearly 5 years, and only letting Dolly escape at Pride weekends.

Why now? Philip explains: “I have been thinking about letting Dolly loose on the Brighton public for some time, and having chatted with my drag partner a few months ago, we decided to reform and have a night of fun. The last time we performed together was for a charity night in Manchester, organised by the Nice ‘n’ Naughty team up north, so it’s great to have the support of Nice ‘n’ Naughty for this one too, and giving support to a local charity in the process”

The show, which lasts about 1 hour, consisting of some classic drag divas, promises to be fun. If you ever experienced the Lillettes when they were regulars at The Hollywood Showbar and Via in Manchester, will know that you will be experiencing old school drag, with Lip Syncing at its best! Philip explains, “we both love performing, and for us it is all about making the audience smile, and having a little giggle at ourselves in the process! Along with the show, we will be having a raffle to raise more funds and as it’s my Birthday, a few drinks afterwards.”

The charity that the girls have chosen is the locally based Martlets Hospice, which plays a vital role in helping people to live life as fully as they can, right up until the end. Through expert clinical care provided by highly skilled and experienced doctors and nurses, they ensure that wherever possible peace, respect and dignity is retained – it is a very simple and very human ethos

Dead Good Arts presents WORD.

An evening of spoken word and Hip Hop, bringing you some of Brighton’s top wordsmiths, musicans and artists.

WORD event header

A night of two halves starting upstairs at the Latest Music Bar with spoken word and acoustic music and ending downstairs with live Hip Hop.

Kat’s Head – A scribbler of all sorts, sandwiching soliloquies and sounds from the soul together in a conversational, stand-up feel.

Jonezy & Najak – This duo from King Porter Stomp brings something a little different with their original material combining acoustic guitar and rhyme.

Teej – One of Brighton’s finest MC’s and freestylers, taking you to the happy places in your mind where you wish you could stay forever and drink tea.

Chris Parkinson – “Chris Parkinson is the best kind of situationist: someone whose poetic, comic oddity leaks unexpectedly into newspaper articles, anomalous photographs, classified ads and other areas of everyday life. He’s also a fine poet.” – FringeGuru

Artists’ Table – Also we have created a space where local brighton artists can come and capture the evening in inks and paint, show off some of their art, and network.

If you’d like to join the table get in touch with us!

Doors 8.00 – 11.00 Price £3
