Christmas: like the proverbial row of tents, there was never a holiday more camp. The glitter, the decorations, the outfits, and the songs; the Yuletide comes all nicely packaged making you feel nice and rosy, all comfy and cosy. No wonder Christmas with The Supreme Fabulettes was a perfect fit.

Last night saw Miss Vanilla Lush, Miss Vicki Vivacious and Miss Maddison Lee entertain a crowd into Christmas cheer. This trio works with a top creative team who have earned their stripes in pop: vocal arranger Terry Ronald worked with Girls Aloud and Dannii Minogue, and musical arranger John Themis has collaborated with sister Kylie, Emma Bunton, the Sugarbabes, and - quell surprise - Boy George and the Culture Club. Boy George is a huge fan of The Fabulettes and wrote them a Christmas song with the seasonably appropriate name ‘You Ruined My Christmas’.

Yet it really is this gorgeous trio who steal the show. The Supreme Fabulettes are true divas on stage, yet still warmly entertaining with a cheeky sense of self-deprecating humour. Most importantly though, take note X-Factor Rylan, these girls can really sing. Their solos, perfect harmonies (and damn, cheekbones) should be the envy of quite a few girl groups out there.

For this special festive edition The Supreme Fabulettes have added more traditional Christmas songs to a repertoire that usually consists of a mix of 60’s classics like the Andrew Sisters and of course The Surpremes, as well as more recent pop-hits from the likes of Adele and Beyoncé. All pretty Glee-like, Christmas with the Supreme Fabulettes presented us with interesting Christmas mash-ups, one moment solemnly announcing the birth of Jesus Christ to singing about his Halo Beyoncé style the next. A duet (quartet?) with special guest star The Voice contestant Sam Buttery turned out to be of the best vocal renditions of the classic ‘Baby, it’s cold outside’ I have heard since Dean Martin worked his charm.

In all this was a night of true entertainment; the songs were accompanied by showy cabaret choreography by Katie Ella Hardwick whose work was The Hurly Burly Show. The multitude of outfits by Stevie Stewart from Bodymap were all gloriously shiny and appropriately sequinned up and the rapid changes seemed seamless. At one time perfectly aided by showing a Christmas episode of The Surpreme Fabulettes cartoon in which the girls help Santa save Christmas. Seeing the audience singing and dancing to their show last night, one can believe they truly did.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
