20/01/13: It’s Butlins on heat! Crystal D’Canter and Kelly Mild host a show of sparkle, glamour and finesse, reeling off show after show tune with as much style as Willy Wonka in his amazing chocolate factory.
Throughout this now legendary Sunday afternoon, the crowd slowly builds up as the melody of camp cabaret engulfs you in a synchronised trance of limp-wristed movement. Starting with a slight tap of the fingers on the thigh, a wiggle of the booty, a side step of the feet and before you know it you are in a full salsa of arm swinging hilarity and sing along.
Yes my fellow campers, we have been transfixed by the dancing queens, and it’s truly delightful! And with Halfway II Heaven having their January sale, and most drinks at half price, this is one hell of a camp and tiddly KiKi.
After Crystal and Kelly whipped the crowd into a frenzy, we were treated to the fabulous styling’s of Mrs Moore, with a tongue as sharp as sucking a lemon post-tequila shot, and a wit like Julian Clary on stage at the Apollo, this queen of the night had two straight girls doing the Charleston at the front of the stage.
Such is the fabulousness of Halfway II Heaven! Make sure you head down and see it for yourselves.
