In her debut solo show, award-winning Burlesque performer Ginger Blush is sexing up your history lessons. Using her sizable brains behind her sizable bust, Ginger will take her audience on a whirlwind tour through the life and times of the second most fabulous redhead in history and the most famous mistress of her time, Nell Gwynn.

 From humble beginnings as a London orange seller, to sharing the bed of the country’s most powerful man, 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 infamous curves, ‘Nell Gwynn’s History Laid Bare’ will bring the 1660s sexy back!

 "Ginger Blush's romp through the life of Nell Gwyn had me absolutely rapt - this is my idea of history: delivered with lashings of sauce, wit and effervescent charm. I bet that's exactly what Nell Gwyn was like herself - so who better to step into her breeches than the mischievous Miss Blush?" - Tricity Vogue

 "The embodiment of both humour and sex that in a way that which exudes class and entertainment" - Faye Armstrong

 "A mix of masterful burlesque, traditional variety and modern music that means Ms Blush stands out from the crowd." - Artist and Makers
