Strictly Charleston Dance Off For Brighton Fringe
Brighton Boutique, Pretty Eccentric to partner with I Charleston Brighton
On 7 May, Brighton’s number one vintage clothing boutique Pretty Eccentric will take Brighton Fringe by storm. At a sensational one off event, Pretty Eccentric will take part in a Charleston dance off to raise money for participants selected charities.
The event hosted and organised by I Charleston Brighton will take place in the Brighton Spiegeltent on 7 May as part of Brighton’s iconic Fringe festival. The I Charleston ladies will guide you through the A-Z of 20’s dance with live music, workshops and competitions throughout the day.
Pretty Eccentric, known locally for designing dresses with old-fashioned glamour, has been handpicked to sponsor, as well as take part in this unique event. One of the shops own staff Kelly Hill will go head to head with other participants in a ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ style competition. Participants will battle it out in front of a live audience to be crowned the winner, with all proceeds going to the winners elected charity.
The Brighton boutique has chosen an organisation close to its heart – First Base (part of Brighton Housing Trust), is a local charity that offers a range of services to support people who are sleeping rough or insecurely housed in the city.
Pretty Eccentric’s partaker Kelly Hill said: “We are all very proud to be supporting such a great charity in Brighton at this exciting event. I adore the 1920s fashion, so I can’t wait to wear my favorite dress from our Gatsby collection and to showcase my dance moves.”
“I’ve been rehearsing religiously in the lead up to this performance, I think it’s going to be a brilliant day filled with dancing, laughter and all things Brighton!”
In the run up to the spectacular show, Pretty Eccentric will be hosting moving window performance at their flagship store on Bond Street, Brighton. On Saturday 16 April at 2.30pm, bystanders will get a glimpse into what the speakeasy at Brighton Fringe has to offer. Kelly and the I Charleston ladies will take centre stage in the shop window, later stepping onto the street to perform a sneak snippet of their routine.
