A LADIES Night showcasing burlesque dancers, a drag queen, and even a few half-naked butlers was held at Tilly's Devonvale Hall on Saturday, August 31.

Hosted by Alloa-based event planning company Event On Trend, it was branded as the perfect night for a birthday, hen do or a divorce party.

The event was held in support of Forth Valley Stillbirth and Neonatal Death charity (SANDS), who aim to tackle the taboo and help break the silence around baby loss.

Lauren Urquhart, the event organiser, told the Advertiser: "It was a really good atmosphere on the night, and we raised a total of £345.50 in support of SANDS.

"We didn't have any complaints at all, even the Devonvale Hall staff came along to join in with the party afterwards.

"The night was sold out with 210 attendees in total. We even had a hen party there too."

She added: "One of the acts we had on the bill cancelled, so Leona Hems stepped in at the last minute.

"Leona has helped us with the ladies day events we've held in the past, so it was great for her to perform at our first ladies night too."

When asked whether everyone enjoyed themselves on Saturday, she added: "It was wild! Everyone seemed to have a great time, it was really good.

"There will be another ladies night coming together soon."

There will also be another ladies day event held at Alloa Town Hall on Sunday, November 3, in aid of breast cancer awareness with tickets on sale now.
