Ladies at Scissorands

Hippodrome guests treated to cutting edge insight into a romantic classic

Leading Ladies at Birmingham Hippodrome were at the cutting edge of dance when Edward Scissorhands lead Liam Mower and members of Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures company shared backstage tales of the adaptation of Tim Burton’s classic film. Among guests were new network associate sponsor Highfield Wellness and Beauty owner Mark Harvey with spa managers Laura and Beth. AVA Event Styling provided for a stunning display which included Edward Scissorhands themed cupcakes courtesy of @cakemodacakes. Prize draw partners Creative Shift, Genting Casino, MakeUp Central, Kyoto Sushi & Grill and Langley’s Gin helped raise £1,000 for the Curtain Raiser project.
