Frances Melhop, voted one of the top 200 photographers in the world 08 is a collaborator on the stunning imagery for Birds of Paradise.

This show is about birds and their feathers. But more, it is about paradise. The best place to find paradise is in the spaces and moments between two, bird or human, two humming with chemistry and love. This show plays with the rituals that can bring them together and celebrates the courtship driven, attention-seeking performances of some bizarre and alluring creatures.

Organisers are asking the audience to dress with style. Arrive adorned with a fascinator hat or feathery cravat, and you may be in for a treat.

With this intimate and luscious evening you can experience - exquisite food in the form of a feathery feast (dinner from 6.00pm book at the venue), delicious cocktails , a hilarious and glamorous show, and shake your tail feather dancing with DJ El Gato Negro...
