What a night we had, last Wednesday, when we brought the Wild West alive at the Buxton Fringe. It was such a fabulous event and we’d like to thank everyone involved – our amazing models, our team of volunteers and, of course, all of the lovely sketchers who came out, in what felt like a Wild West climate, to paint our wagon.

Big thanks, also, to Eric Murphy for these wonderful photos. The rest of the set can be viewed HERE.


Dr Sketchy Sheffield does the Buxton Fringe

Dr Sketchy Sheffield does the Buxton Fringe Festival

After our little hiatus we are thrilled to announce that our next event will be at the Buxton Festival Fringe.

For the first time we are holding an event at this great festival of performing arts, theatre and creativity. It’s the perfect place for us we feel!

We’d love it if you would mosey on down to Dr Sketchy’s saloon bar, on Wednesday 23rd of July, above the Old Clubhouse, 3 Water St, Buxton, SK17 6XN, for a Wild West themed evening of life drawing and so much more!

Tickets are £10 on the door. Doors open at 7pm and the fun kicks off at 7:30.
All abilities welcome.
See you there!

bring me sunshine

Well, folks, what a year 2013 was for us. Lot’s of changes at HQ and a whole lot of fabulousness on stage. We’d like to wish you all a happy, healthy 2014.

We’d also like to bring a little sunshine into your lives, this grey rainy January, in the form of The Yorkshire Puddings burlesque and dance troupe. These ladies have more curve to their swerve and they’ll be swerving their curve down to our regular venue, The Greystones, on Tuesday 21st Jan. Plus, of course, all our usual fun and games. 7:30pm kick off. Doors will open from 7, so get there early to bag yourself the best seats. Click on our buxom beauties for full event details.

Cheerio, me ducks. See you on the 21st.


you are cordially invited to…

Hello folks.

Thanks to everyone who came along to our last event; Dr Sketchy does the Velvet Burlesque at The Greystones. It was fabulous! Amazing models, poses and sketches. We’ll post the photos when we’ve sorted through them all. We’re having difficulty choosing the best there are so many great shots.

Anyway, it never stops at Sketchy HQ and we are very excited to announce that, for the first time ever, we are taking our Dr Sketchy show to Buxton! Yes we are dipping our toes in the Buxton (spring) water with, what we hope, will be the first of regular events in this lovely town.

Join us at the for an evening of life drawing and Burlesque. The Velvet Burlesque girls will be modelling and performing for us in this fabulous venue – a formerGentleman’s Club.

All the usual stuff; great music, fab models, interesting poses, competitions, drinks and prizes. Plus, this lovely venue gives us the opportunity to set up scenes – or ‘tableaus’ as I believe is the correct term.

Eight quid on the door. All abilities welcome. You don’t need to be a professional artist (if you are that’s great, but you don’t have to be). No pressure, just come and have some life-drawing fun. See you there!
