”A burlesque siren at the top of her game, Sophia will have you enraptured from the second her stilettos touch the stage. This is a girl who could be the definition of glamour with her flame coloured hair and an abundance of sparkle and cheek- it is guaranteed she will have you gasping for more. Her acts hold the essence of true Classic Burlesque with exquisite lavish costumes and custom made pieces. One of those girls that puts the “Oooh” in to “Ooh la la.”

“I can say that Sophia was absolutely fantastic. I think she may have been the most popular event on the night which, given the massive array is quite impressive. She was certainly the best value of all the ents, given the entertainment that she provided and how many people saw it. She was thoroughly professional, beautiful, provocative and fun. Really enchanting and hugely popular. The venue for her second performance was changed on the night from the Dining Room to the Marquee, to ensure she had a more suitable stage, and when they announced it in the Dining Room just before she was due on it was like someone had just set off the fire alarm – literally a stampede of people all heading out the door towards the marquee!! I will definitely be recommending both Sophia and Contraband Entertainments to my successor. Thank you very much.”
