As well as showcasing local talent Ventnor Arts Club has, over the last two years, presented a wide range of original entertainment from all over the UK and beyond and that is set to continue with a performance from Whatever Happened to Lala Shockette this weekend.
The lavish but welcoming style of the club has found that cabaret style performances are one of the most popular elements on its programme. The supper and show events are extremely successful and regularly sell out.
WHATEVER HAPPENED TO LALA SHOCKETTE is a hilarious, poignant, multi-media cabaret show which traces the steps of the early 80’s New Romantic pop star, LaLa Shockette,(the alter ego of Lowri-Ann Richards) from her humble, Welsh dairy farm beginnings to Top of the Pops, appearances at Wembley & iconic stardom. Beautifully sung songs by artists as diverse as John Cale, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Gary Numan- with anecdotes & some very tall stories which are ‘backed up’ through the use of projected original photographs & live video footage.
The club is once again welcoming friend and guest chef Klaus, proprietor of Cantina, to prepare a delicious supper for you ahead of this fab show on Saturday (11th April) at 19:30.
He’s reflected the ’80s back-story in his menu and a great value supper and show ticket is available.
Tickets are available now from www.ventnorartsclub.com, by phone on 01983 857060 or from Ventnor Exchange on Ventnor’s Church Street.
