Thursday the 4th of June

“There is
only one remaining Rape Crisis centre for the whole of
London.

That’s one small centre for 3.9 million women.
The staff and volunteers who run the centre work with constant
danger of closing over their heads and can never be sure that their
core funding costs can be met from year to year. During the run-up
to his election, Boris Johnson promised, with much PR fanfare, to
pay for three new centres and fund the only remaining centre for at
least 4 years. That he will fulfill that promise, or even part of
it, is now seriously in doubt. He needs to be poked accordingly.
The consultation opened to decide the funding closes on 20th July
and we’re mounting a campaign both to support the remaining centre
in Croydon and let Boris know that we want him to keep his promise!
There will be events, press work and lots of asking people to give
£2 a month to support the last remaining centre in Croydon.
Please get involved, even if you just let other
people know about the campaign. We can make this shameful situation
better with just a little help.

Look forward to seeing you
there!x”
I’m really excited about this performance
because I will conciously be using my ethnicity to do an homage to
Anna May Wong. As my UK performance years have progressed and as
I’ve become more seasoned, I’m not longer hired for just my
burlesque skills but for my abilities to come up with bespoke
performances in the broader world of variety and cabaret. I strive
to infuse my performance with political dialogue whenever I can.
This homage to a woman who wanted “The woman who died a thousand
times” engraved on her tombstone is especially important to me
because of how she was treated by cinema and media from the 20’s to
the 50’s. She was constantly being knocked-off in every manner of
way in the films she appeared in; there is no doubt that this is
because she was a Chinese woman. It will be interesting to see how
I’m treated as a black market DVD “sales person” before I go on
stage and then dragged off by immigration
inspectors.

Party on Friday 8th May. Bring out those smoking jackets, slip into
some silk lounging pyjamas and be taken on a nocturnal journey at
Time For Tea’s exclusive new residence.

Time For Tea’s carriages will be stationed at
East, West and Central London pick up spots to whisk you away to
the rural idyll of Stoke Place, where the house and grounds have
been turned over exclusively to the party goer’s pleasure, for the
ultimate slumber party.

Once you
have alighted on the long gravel driveway, beside the croquet lawn,
the only strenuous choice you face is in which order to examine the
assembled delights. Sweep your partner off their feet in the
decadent Ballroom where Johnny Chrome and Silver (Modern Times,
Rakehells, The Zeppelin, Blitz Party) will be playing a swinging
selection of toe tapping hits followed by Hitman Hearn (Bethnal
Green Working Men’s Club, Shunt Lounge) as he turns up the tempo
with style to ensure you are in the dreamiest of moods. Twin and
Tonic will take to the stage to delight and amuse with their vocal
talents and dancers will perform a series of staged performances
throughout the evening culminating in a DJ set from Daniel the
Dandy (Modern Times).

In the
Games Room a healthy intellect can be diverted towards chess,
draughts, or perhaps the more tactical elements of strip twister, a
theme which can be carried on outside with the croquet and outsize
chess sets. If you’ve worked up a healthy appetite, there will be
an evening dinner service available to leave you sated, thanks to
Stoke Place’s award winning chefs.

Pass by Miss Moons Photo Parlour and request a
vintage portrait set against a star spangled background. Vent in
the Pillow Fighting Ring; knock ten bells out of your nearest and
dearest in a room dedicated to feathery bashing whilst an umpire
adjudicates to ensure against foul play. Find out ‘What the Butler
Saw’ as Trixie Malicious, Fancy Chance and Millicent Binks tease,
each in their own bedroom-based performances to ensure that you
leave with a blush.

Time For
Tea’s eerily accurate Tarot Reader will be at hand offering short
readings high on drama for those that are brave enough – and if you
are, a series of four intimate Victorian séances will take place
from midnight to 1am in a darkened attic room, waking guests from
centuries gone by. As the clock strikes twelve indulge yourself in
a spectacular Midnight Feast or if you feel like reclining take a
trip to the Cinema Room to take advantage of the cocktail service
whilst watching a series of vintage films from the comfort of a
giant bed.

If you require a
little fresh air why not frolic in the grounds strewn with hammocks
(complete with duvets and pillows) and hanging lanterns, lulled by
an opera singing Bo Peep tending to her (live) sheep and lambs on
the lawn. Or contemplate the reflection of the moon at picnic
tables decked with crisp white table cloths, candelabra and
festooned with fruits. Just as you feel like ‘the cats pyjamas’
Time For Tea’s chariots will depart at 3am leaving you wondering
whether it was all just a magical dream.

A lucky few will have booked the very limited
number of room packages available, including dinner, bed and
breakfast. They will be able to enjoy the benefit of a bar that
never closes as the party continues into the night.

This event marks the first of a series of events
hosted by Time For Tea to take part at Stoke Place and The Olde
Bell both part of the Dhillon Hotel Group.
