What's on in Dundee in July 2014
Event of the Month | THE LADY BOYS OF BANGKOK: RED HOT KISSES TOUR 2014
(4 - 12 JULY)
Sizzling, sexy and seductive; a show like no other and not to be missed – The Lady Boys of Bangkok returns to the UK for its 16th year. Stopping for a week in Dundee, before appearing in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, ‘Red Hot Kisses’ will see temperatures rising in The Sabai Pavilion set in Baxter Park. Watch in astonishment as sixteen gorgeous and glamorous Lady Boys take to the stage in a truly unique performance.
With an array of extravagant costumes, plenty of cheeky humour and full-on glitz & glamour – this show is perfect for girl’s (or boy’s) night out or even as a first date ice-breaker! The travelling Sabai Pavilion allows you to be surrounded and enveloped in Bangkok’s exotic atmosphere as the aroma of freshly prepared Thai food fills the air, which you can enjoy with a drink from the fully licensed bar.
There’s also a Lady Boy’s Boudoir where you can buy some fantastic souvenirs from DVDs to masks and other novelties – a great way to remember a sparkling night out.
Celebrating in a group? Book a premium or platinum table package and get the best seats in the house along with a souvenir brochure, Thai meal and a standard drink per person. Book through us and you’ll get £10 off tickets Sunday – Friday
Location: The Sabai Pavilion, Baxter Park Terrace, Dundee, DD4 6NL

THE HANDLEBARDS: A COMEDY OF ERRORS (31 JULY 2014)

Location: HM Frigate Unicorn, City Quay
DOLPHIN WATCH (5 & 8 JULY)
Although Dundee may not be a tropical paradise where you can swim with dolphins in warm waters it doesn’t mean you can’t see them in their natural habitat. Ancrum Outdoor Centre has teamed up with Dundee’s Countryside Rangers to offer two powerboat trips to see pods of dolphins and other local wildlife in Tay Estuary.
Location: Tay Estuary
