White Swan’s 31st Birthday

27/08/16: Now if you saw our front cover last week, you might have noticed that those two cuties Joe and Jake who represented us in Eurovision were on the cover.

You may also have noticed they were the showstopper spectacular of the White Swan’s cracking 31st Birthday! The show they put on was injecting rocket fuel into the fabulous bird yet – getting the crowd singing and dancing with covers of Zayn, Jonas Blue, and Walk the Moon before finally performing their hit You’re Not Alone.

In addition to the beautiful boys were the vocal talents of Jason Prince and Kelly Wilde, while outrageous east-end drag came from Sophie Saunders who had everyone shouting “you can’t say that!” through their tears of laughter.

And finally, one clever man won the special swan contest, which had him £50 up at the bar and backstage with Eurovision starlight. All in all, we reckon 31st birthdays should now be called White Swans because that one was a flapping ball!
