Steampunk Hidden Taxidermist

We went to a marvellous evening called Steampunk Hidden Taxidermist at the Marlborough this evening. What on earth is that, I hear you ask? Well, it's "a Neo-Victorian Cabaret featuring stuffed strange animal artefacts, mostly deceased by 100 years, live music, bizarre burlesque and interactive malarkey." What an earth is that, I hear you ask again... haha. Well, here's a sneak view into the evening: (Warning, there will be some near-nudity)

The wonderful Tarik Elmoutawakil

First act, the enormously talented cellist/singer of The Moulettes. (I didn't catch her name... she performed instead of another act that was cancelled)

Followed by the malarkey bit.

Then the hauntingly beautiful Billie Rae came on stage.

If you read my New Year's Eve blog post you might remember that Billie Rae is also a fire performer!

Then a true character, Marianna Harlotta, who performed strangely familiar songs in her unique way and had everyone laughing and whooping.

As you can see, it's a tiny venue, really. Very fun and friendly one.

To finish, Bille Rae performed another marvellous act.

Apparently this was the last Steampunk Hidden XX event of the season. When they return in the autumn, I'm very much tempted to attend again. I recommend you do, too!
