Mango Tree Hosts A Lady Boy Cabaret

Mango Tree, the authentic and innovative Thai restaurant in the heart of Belgravia, will brighten up London on 24th September as they bring back their fabulous Lady Boy competition. Guests will be able to enjoy one of Thailand’s most celebrated and talked of traditions, with lights, glitter, canapés, cocktails and glamour galore. Mango Tree will be throwing an Out of This World party, the most flamboyant one to date that they have ever produced. Expect music, madness and mayhem for all those lucky enough to experience this unforgettable evening.


Maintaining tradition, Mango Tree will be putting on the Miss Mango Pageant, crowning the Out Of This World winner and two runners up during the night and gifting them magnificent prizes. Get ready to be dazzled by the awards for the best costume and body. With a panel of esteemed judges, including Simon Gross from Simon Showbiz, and a show stopping drag queen show, the evening will truly be Out of This World. Music from professional DJ’s, canapes and cocktails will keep the energy up all night.

To show guests a night to remember, Mango Tree will be transformed from a fine dining restaurant to a festival of colour, music, drag queens, pageants and canapés. A selection of fine Thai treats will be served including green curry chicken puff; chilli basil vegetable spring roll with tom kha sauce; pan fried duck dumpling; spicy lamb gaj; deep fried spicy prawn and chicken pad thai to keep guests dancing all night. For dessert, banana cake and mango and coconut jelly will be handed round for those sweet toothed fiends.

The acclaimed bar team at Mango Tree have created a special list of cocktails that will reflect this year’s theme and help partygoers get the evening off to a great start. Keeping to their roots, Mango Tree are giving all proceeds to charity, so guests can enjoy a touch of Thailand whilst giving a little to those who most need it.

If the night is as spectacular as previous years, it will make for both a delicious and daring evening with lots of frivolous fun, good-giving, fantastic food and Thai tradition.

LONDON FASHION WEEK – CRISIS HOMELESSNESS SHOW

Series Background:

Dan Harley runs a fashion series called ‘Live Fashion’, conceived in Milan (while shooting fashion week) in 2012 waiting in a street with hundreds of people trying to get into the ‘Fendi ft Karl Lagerfeld’ show – “…it was a great show but there was so much fantastic energy left outside on the streets with most people who didn’t get into the show” – Dan thought then that social media would eventually have the power to change the traditional fashion week runway experience to make things a lot more accessible, interactive & immediate, as opposed to the closed off exclusive ticketed affairs they had historically been – as well as forcing the industry to be a lot more representative of the diversity of people consuming fashion, a lot of whom were waiting out in the street that day

Even now (5 years later) when Dan goes into high street fashion shops he sees a huge range of cultural diversity that’s not represented in the same degree on the global fashion week runways – He always thought it was strange that shows wouldn’t want to appeal to as broad a range of backgrounds as they could to reflect the range of backgrounds buying the end product in the shops or queuing to try to get into the showsDan felt like these 2 ingredients were missing from Fashion Week shows, so he started the series – so far he has produced a show in Paris & 13 shows over various locations around London

The series has evolved recently to add another dimension in the form of social messages based on issues that Dan has personal experience with – The last show was an Aids Awareness show inspired after Dan thought he’d been exposed to HIV earlier in the year & the relief on getting a clear diagnosis – having had a glimpse into the prospect of what a life of antiretroviral drugs & stigma might look like.

This show has a homelessness message inspired by a group of homeless people Dan plays music with & has become friends with around East London (expanded upon in the next section)
The ‘Live Fashion’ show is unlike anything anyone else is doing with it’s high energy interactions with the crowds & the immediate environment – The fashion show has had models taking over the Apple Store in Covent Garden, set off a full scale security staff response in Top Shop (they dramatically over-reacted) literally stopped traffic in Piccadilly Circus, blocked off Brick Lane & hijacked a live chainsaw show in Covent Garden with Dan almost getting decapitated by the agitated chainsaw owner



Crisis Homelessness Show Sat 16th Sept 2017:https://www.crisis.org.uk/

Live Fashion 14 took place on Saturday 16th September 2017 during London Fashion Week & has a homelessness message inspired by a group of homeless people Dan regularly plays music with & has become friends with over the last 3 years around Shoreditch, Brick Lane & the Nomadic Gardens (a community project off Brick Lane) having seen how something as simple as the creative process of playing music can build confidence & give a sense of self belief

Further motivated by the 6th year of rising homelessness numbers in London & the UK, it’s been eye opening for Dan to hear, 1st hand, some of the complexities behind a variety of different paths to homelessness & a variety of homelessness outcomes, from sleeping on the streets to living in squats.

When Dan went to talk to Crisis about the idea of doing the show & they told him about how they approach helping get people out of homelessness with their Learning, Wellbeing & Arts classes to build confidence & self belief, Dan felt like that really resonated with his own experience & was excited to hear they loved the idea

The message of the show revolves around Crisis’s 50th Anniversary plan to make sure they are not needed in another 50 years – they are running a 50/50 challenge to go 50 miles in 50 days travelling however you wish; running, swimming, walking, surfing, even space hopping to raise money for the cause – Live Fashion 14 used the same space hopper Crisis have been using in their promotional literature.



Showtime started at 2.30pm with a dozen models catwalking in Leicester Square, before heading down to Trafalgar Square at 3pm then along the Strand to the main London Fashion Week venue at 180 Strand at 4pmCrisis Homelessness Charity supplied leaflets, t-shirts & banners (& their space hopper) to use during the show.Live Fashion 14 features 2 talented designers who both produced outstanding collections at this year’s Graduate Fashion Week show – Maddie Williams instagram: @mwilliams_design https://www.instagram.com/mwilliams_design/ dressed the women with her highly structured, exaggerated silhouettes to celebrate feminine strength using reclaimed or renewable materials – James Reeves instagram: @jamesreevesdesign https://www.instagram.com/jamesreevesdesign/ dressed the men fusing formality & military themes with sequins & prints, pushing the boundaries of traditional tailoring & reconstructing the conventions of menswear

SNAP HAPPY SAFARI FROM GANE AND MARSHALL

Press Release
12 September 2017

Wildlife Photographer, Nick Dale Teams Up with Gane And Marshall To Lead His First Photography Tour of Tanzania

Specialist wildlife and adventure tour operator Gane and Marshall has launched a photography safari in Tanzania, led by photographer Nick Dale. The seven-night Tanzania Northern Highlights Photographic Safari departs on 10 February 2018, and is the first tour of its kind by the acclaimed wildlife photographer.

The safari, which visits Lake Manyara National Park, Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater, will give budding photographers the chance to learn the tricks of the trade from a master in his field.  With an emphasis on “capturing the moment”, Dale has sold over 5,000 images, published three photography books and won countless competitions, including The Sunday Times Big Shot.




Dale will join guests on the daily game drives to offer hands-on advice for capturing the perfect shot. Throughout the tour, he’ll run individual and group sessions – tailored to everyone’s ability level – covering composition and camera familiarisation plus photographic techniques such as taking a ‘slow pan’ shot of a wildebeest. He will share his personal ‘shot of the day’ and ask guests to share their top three shots each day for discussion, feedback and key learnings. Participants are not required to have a DSLR camera, but, if they are particularly interested in honing their “close-up” skills or want to capture images that they can blow up and frame on the wall, a DSLR camera is recommended.

“I’m delighted to be working with Gane and Marshall on this specialist safari,” says Dale.  “My passion for wildlife photography has taken me all over Africa with highlights including capturing the ‘gorillas in the mist’ on camera in Rwanda and Uganda, and snapping a variety of wildlife in the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Okavango Delta in Botswana. This will be my first trip as the tour photographer, and I’m excited to share my expertise and show budding wildlife photographers how to get the most out of a game drive, the best techniques to use and a few fundamentals about the Exposure Triangle (shutter speed, aperture and ISO) to give them the best possible chance of capturing “the money shot” and returning home with the ultimate safari souvenir.”

Brazil Wildlife Tours – Macaws Araras

Wildlife fans taking the ‘Tanzania Northern Highlights Photographic Safari’ will experience Lake Manyara National Park, described by Ernest Hemingway as “the loveliest I have seen in Africa” thanks to its ground water forests, bush plains, baobab-strewn cliffs and hot springs that offer incredible ecological variety in a small area rich in wildlife; the Serengeti, one of the largest and best game reserves in all of Africa and home to the ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, elephant, and rhino; and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world, which offers a diversity of landscapes, wildlife, people and archaeology.

The trip departs the UK on 10 February 2018, arriving at Kilimanjaro airport on 11 February and returning on 17 February 2018.




Prices start from £2,240 per person, based on two sharing. This includes one night at Tloma Lodge, located on the eastern shoulder of the Ngorongoro Highlands, three nights at a traditional bush camp – Kati Kati Camp – in the game-rich Seronera region in the heart of the Serengeti, two nights at the small and exclusive Ngorongoro Farmhouse close to the Ngorongoro Lolduare gate, internal transfers, private transportation throughout, all entrance fees and park fees, an experienced guide and support team, including Nick Dale as the photographer guide. An optional balloon ride over the Serengeti costs £485 per person. International flights are additional, starting from £650 return with Kenya Airways from London Heathrow to Kilimanjaro International.
