Strictly tasteful

IF YOU prefer your nights out that little bit different, head along to The Hold for the Enterteasement night.

As diverse an evening’s entertainment you could not wish for.

First of all, you have access to Scotland’s version of Derren Brown — mentalist Colin McLeod.

Not only that, but this young mentalist has even been known to write for the more famous Brown.

If you find the bespectacled entertainer somewhat familiar, it may be that you have caught his act on Britain’s Got Talent or Pen and Teller: Fool Us, where he reached a much wider audience.

Also on the bill is the rock ‘n’ roll burlesque bombshell, Daiquiri Dusk.

Hailing from that line of entertainment popularly known as burlesque, Daiquiri has been described as the love-child of Gypsy Rose Lee and Nikki Sixx.

And its not only men who find Daiquiri’s act mesmerising, as women too succumb to her charms.

Also providing a burlesque theme is dancing troupe Scarlet Fever. Add to this comedy in the form of three promising talents, Graham Mackie, Ann Devitt and Eddie Cassidy, and it’s lining up to be a pleasant mix to generate much appeal.

Friday, May 18 at The Hold, underneath The Admiral bar.

Tickets are £12 in advance and £15 on the door.
