As time approaches the witching hour…
Let the spirited performers lead you in spellbinding dance
For this Vampires Ball is a game of chance…


Pink Minx, Elizabeth Bathory The Blood Countess

So legend tells us in the 16th century The Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory of Hungary murdered 650 innocent victims and bathed in their still warm blood in order to prolong her stunning beauty. Or was she the victim of another’s cunning plan? Halloween is the night when you will finally learn the truth. Peek behind our grand velvet curtains and step into The Blood Countess’ world. You will witness her in her infamous bathing quarters and see for yourself whether she was victim or vampire!

Gazelle, Mircalla

We take you back to the 16th century where you will meet Countess Mircalla Karnstein, from the book Sheridan Le Fanu’s The Dark Blue. The date is 1545, her name is Carmilla and she is just 23 years old, a rare beauty with a dark story. For Carmilla is a vampire, bitten as a young woman and transformed for everyone into Mircalla, the vampire. She makes all who meets her fall desperately in love with her and then pleasures them to death. Do take care ladies, her true favourite poison is young, beautiful women.

Dracula (Performer TBA)

No evening would be complete without a visit from Count Dracula who will be accompanied by the deathly sounds of a lone violinist. Dracula, the most famous of all vampires would seduce beautiful young women with his charm and exotic good looks. Of course, Dracula really did exist in the 15th Century and was Vlad the Impaler from Transylvania. As the legend says, vampires never actually die so who knows what the evening will bring? Be prepared for your heart rate to race far faster than ever before but do pay attention to your neck, you never know who might want to take a bite…

I am the undead; living in darkness is light to me
I seek out your blood, for I know the secret to eternity.
You will fall into my arms, my thirst is so great
Succumb to my need, for it is your fate.
There will be no gravestone while I roam the earth
My love, I will show you the path to rebirth.
I’m Lord of the Vampires, come and spend death in my wake
For the world of the living is ours to go and take.

Pink Minx, Lucy Westenra

Lucy Westenra is a truly radiant beauty, a vivacious young woman with a lust for life. She is pure, sweet and adored which is why she is seen as such a wonderful catch for many young men who wish to be considered as a suitor. However….something far more sinister arrives at her bedside, something lustful which awakens her deepest wanton desires and lures her into a world of bloodthirsty vampires. She becomes the Countess of Dolingen but something isn’t quite right. Her flowing hair is stark white, crimson blood drips from her full ruby lips and her eyes are now bottomless voids. Keep your eyes closed! You never know what you might see… we dare you to peak through your eyelashes…..and see what Bram Stoker, writer of Dracula and The Countess Dolingen has in store for you.

Gazelle Carmilla

Our dramatic act takes place when Carmilla is at her most powerful, she will seduce you, court you and immerse you into her world by giving the women in the audience gentle kisses and tokens from her clothing. Watch her breathtakingly transform from Countess to vampire as she strips from her decadent opulent clothing until she resembles a vampire when she rests in her grave. Carmilla will be accompanied by four other risqué Burlesque performers.

Queen of The Damned Shamita Sivabalan

Picture the scene. The time is past midnight. A devastatingly beautiful female vampire called Akasha lurks alone on the empty city streets searching for her betrayer. She sees a male. She approaches him, silently; stealthily ready to make her move. She moves in for the kill and drinks his blood. Queen of the Damned, she has destroyed him but she has a bigger purpose. She must find the one who has defied her – the one who has betrayed her so the hunt continues. The dance you will witness is that of Akasha, an alluring, powerful dance which is both captivating and erotic. You will feel her wild pain and her crazed mind as she writhes to the music taking you on her evil journey. Will you be able to keep up?
