Fruity: Ginger Blush is performing as Nell Gwynne in Croydon next week

In her debut solo show, award-winning burlesque performer Ginger Blush is sexing up the 17th century. Ginger takes her audience on a whirlwind tour through the life and times of the most famous mistress of her time, Nell Gwynn.

“From humble beginnings as a London orange-seller, to sharing the bed of King Charles II, Nelly was England’s original spice girl sex bomb, and the perfect muse for Ginger Blush’s fabulous and inimitable style. Full of risqué parodies, absurdist pastiches and Ginger’s famous curves, Nell Gwynn’s History Laid Bare will bring the 1660s sexy back,” say the promoters.

“It’s a mix of masterful burlesque, traditional variety and modern music that means Miss Blush stands out from the crowd” Artists and Makers.

This is a one-off performance, at 7.30pm next Friday, September 25, with tickets just £10. Over-16s only, as the show contains “some nudity”.
