In pictures: West End Bares

Published September 3, 2013

Roll up, roll up, for all the fun of the fair; and what fun it looks to have been as West End performers united to put a show on and take their clothes off for charity.

The coconuts, it’s fair to say, were not shy, and the sideshows did get freaky at the Café De Paris, as the Make A Difference Trust’s annual fiesta of theatrical flesh, West End Bares, created a frisky funfair like no other this weekend.

The stars, and parts of them you don’t normally see, came out to raise money for the entertainment industry charity that supports people living with HIV and AIDS. Even Strictly Come Dancing’s Robin Windsor braved the stage with little more to cover his embarrassment than a couple of cue cards, ably supported by Lisa Riley and Anita Dobson.

Photographers Darren Bell and Chris Jepson were at the event to capture the evening’s festivities.

If you missed West End Bares 2013, but would like to support the MAD Trust, you can buy memorabilia including a West End Bares 2014 calendar from the charity’s online shop.
