The stage is a lot smaller than at Hurst Community Centre. It can fit a maximum of 5 performers dancing, or 3 performers with chairs.
There are no steps down to the audience.
There is no exclusive backstage area, you will have to go through the audience in order to get backstage so please bare this in mind.
Seating will be in a cabaret style (i.e. around tables).

Photography and Filming:
We will have a photographer and cameraman on site. There is NO separate area for Cherry BomBombs at this event, and therefore we must ask you not to take photos or video while the show is running. You are welcome to take as many photos backstage as you wish.
Anyone over the age of 18 can attend, please note partial nudity (nipple tassels) will be included in the performance.
There is a small car park on site, on-street parking and a large public car park opposite the centre.
There is one large dressing room for us all to use at the centre.
PLEASE NOTE there is no direct access from the backstage area to the stage. You will need to walk through the audience to get backstage, so please bring something to cover your costume.
Props and Stage:
The stage is a LOT smaller than at Hurst Community Centre, so props should be limited to a minimum. Please also note, there are no steps down to the audience.
Food and drink:
Please bring food and drink to sustain you throughout the day.
Tea and coffee will be available, but do bring your own mug!
The venue can be hot and cold, so it is advisable to bring layers with you and a hoodie/jumper.
After the show:
Please make sure you take ALL costumes and props with you
Leave the dressing room as you found them and put all rubbish in the bins provided.
Performers are also asked to help stack away the chairs at the end of the night. These have to be put away in the correct location and Maxine will be on hand to direct you where this is.
We also ask you help to tidy the main hall area, clear away rubbish/take glasses up to the bar so that we can all enjoy the evening afterwards.
