23rd Mar 2006: Creative Burngreave Open Day
Creative Burngreave booked Jamboree to provide our beautiful marquee
as a gallery space for local artists. We were also pleased to provide
a part of their entertaining evening with Sophie compering and the
'Bow Tux'd Twins' performing in the cemetry chapel. A really lovely
evening. Thanks to Jenifer Denis and all at Creative Burngreave.
18th Mar 2006: Peek-a-Boo Burlesque at the Sola Bar
Ultra-vixen have been running a Burlsque night in Sheffield for
the last six months. In March they asked Jamboree to provide some
of the entertainment and infrastructure to help the night progress
and expand. The first night was great, with the Cous-Cous torture
company joining the regular line up to make the night go with a
smash and a tinkle. Watch out in the diary for future dates.
8th February 2006: Valentines Ball at the City Hall Ball Room
Jamboree provided the compere and two excellent acts for this classy
ball. Thanks to Julie at Gash clothing for getting us involved.
I hope we can make it an annual event. Great fun was had by all
including the merry Lord Mayor.
3rd Feb 2006: The Fusion Circus Cabaret
Jamboree and the Polichinelo Circus students delivered a con-fusion
of acrobatic and aerial feats to the delight of all at the Burngreave
Cemetry Chapel. This proved to be a wonderful evening of high class
acts and hopefully will set the scene for collaborations to come.
10th December 2005: The Wardrobe of Delights
This was a brilliant event. The capacity audience enjoyed a superb

And the great news is Maureen and Beryl will be on tour with the
'Wardrobe of Delights' and the rest of the crew in 2006!
